The Honan Chapel - Gallery Collection


Image TitleHonan Chapel: view of south face
DescriptionSir John O´Connell wanted the Honan Chapel to be built in an Hiberno-Romanesque style. He directed James McMullen to seek inspiration from the 12th century ruins in Co.Tipperary. McMullen is credited with the design of the Chapel, but firmly under the direction of O´Connell. James McMullen distilled the principles of the Hiberno-Romanesque style for the chapel. The rectangular nave is 72ft long and 28ft wide. The building is made of Cork white limestone.
