Description

An image of St. Patrick's Hall, which is located on South Street alongside St. Patrick's Catholic Church in the town of York, Western Australia. Originally built and dedicated as a mission church on St. Patrick's Day in 1859, it soon became apparent to Father Patrick Gibney, who became resident priest in 1868, that the church was not big enough for the congregation.

In 1869, he commissioned Joseph Nunan, an ex-convict who was an expert in Irish and Gothic architecture, to design and supervise the building of a new church in York. The church which was built is the current St Patrick's Catholic Church on South Street besides which St. Patrick's Hall stands.
