Callan Church

A substantial neo-classical parish church located on the Main Street in Callan, Co. Kilkenny.

As part of a large project to conserve the building, David Kelly Partnership repaired the roof structure in-situ, and solved persistent structural movement in the portico and spire.

The structural repair of the roof structure was designed to avoid any impact on the highly enriched plaster ceiling underneath.

David Kelly Partnership identified deterioration in the ashlar portico and spire due to flaws in the stone and expansion of iron bands in the spire stonework and designed a repair strategy to support and retain as much historic fabric as possible.
