    In this essay I propose to discuss some of the architectural plans and drawings in the library collections and their relation to existing buildings. These drawings are the work of architects Augustus Welby Northmore Pugin (1812-52) and James Joseph McCarthy (1817-82) in the main, and illustrate the mid-nineteenth- century building programme at Maynooth. Pugin's influential writings on architecture, ornament and all matters Gothic, which are well represented in the collections, will also be discussed.
