Description

Global Visionaries: Showcasing Limerick as a global crossroads where visionary people and places resonate.

Mary Immaculate College's original 'res block' is one of Ireland's gems in the International Style by Limerick architect Andy Devane a decade after his fellowship under Frank Lloyd Wright.

A fine twentieth century addition to the training college, by the architect Andrew Devane (1917-2000) (Robinson Keefe Devane), a Limerick born architect of some of the country's finest architecture of the second half of the twentieth century. His father was physician to the college from 1915 until his retirement in the 1950s. In Limerick he also designed the Scoil Mhainchín Naofa Cailíní agus Naíonáin (St. Munchin's Girls' School, Ballynanty) which is a building of national significance. He studied architecture in UCD, before joining Robinson and Keefe Architects. He was awarded the Taliesin Fellowship and in 1946 he left Ireland for a time for the U.S.A. to be an apprentice architect to Frank Lloyd Wright.

1hr tour led by Emma Gilleece. Architect: Andy Devane, 1955
