TOWNSEND, EDMUND PAUL
- Born: 1798 Died: 1881
Presentation Brother and architect. Edmund Paul Townsend, who was born in 1798, is said to have trained as an architect before joining the Presentation Brothers. He is credited with the design of the Presentation school and monastery at Milltown, Co. Kerry, built in the mid-1840s. He was responsible for the building of - and thus perhaps the design for - a new Presentation school and monastery at Killarney (begun in or after 1845) and Greenmount National School, Cork (1854-1856). He died in Cork in 1881.
