Carlow Architectural Heritage

National Heritage Inventory

By William Garner

Sponsored by The Heritage Trust.

Published in 1980

ABSTRACT The following text is taken from Carlow Architectural Heritage c.1980 National Heritage Inventory By William Garner and is intended as an inventory of buildings of architectural interest in the town of Carlow. 

 It is the second in a series, the National Heritage Inventory, which will deal with counties and towns throughout the country. The purpose of the series is to provide a record of buildings of merit and by improving public knowledge and appreciation to help to ensure their conservation.

An attempt has been made to indicate the importance of buildings by grading. The grading is based on the system used throughout the country by An Foras Forbartha in compiling the inventory of the national heritage: I  indicates buildings of international importance; N  buildings of national importance; R  buildings of regional importance; L  buildings of local importance. All the buildings mentioned below are of architectural importance unless the contrary is specifically stated.  Unfortunately, this system does not do full justice to buildings in towns, since some buildings may be of little architectural importance and yet by virtue of their location and shape, contribute greatly to the cuality of the townscape.
