County Kerry: Pat McAuliffe 1846-1921

McAuliffe lived and worked in Listowel as a builder and plasterer. His wonderfully detailed shop and house facades are an eclectic mixture of classical, art nouveau, Celtic and Byzantine influences. They are important examples of the late 19th century pan-European quest for a national style. Traces of his work can also be found on other buildings in Listowel and the surrounding region.
