Moylurg Tower: The Ugliest Building in Ireland?
The Moylurg Tower rises from the north-west corner of the ruins of Rockingham House which was destroyed by fire on 10 September 1957. The reinforced concrete tower is six-storeys in height and 150 ft tall, originally serviced by a staircase.
This tower stands as a monument to man-made technology, not in competition with its bucolic surroundings. Moylurg Tower allows us to survey parklands that are now in public ownership. Does this building deserve the title of ugliest building in Ireland?
