The former Dominican Church in Athy Town is to be a new municipal library. The original building is formed of a striking hyperbolic parabolic curved roof with significant elements of stained glass artwork and the design concept was to preserve the original spatial and light qualities of the former church, whilst upgrading to provide a modern library.
