St Peter’s Seminary is a place which draws mixed reactions from a lot of people. On one hand people dislike the architecture style and the construction methods, calling it a concrete monstrosity. On the other hand it is a listed building and seen to be a modern architecture marvel. It has lain abandoned for years, having no use other than to be a canvas for some talented grafitti artists.
We visited the site on several occasions between 2011 and 2014, seeing the building go through various stages of destruction as a result of the weather and a few people with nothing better to do with their time.
In recent times a group were able to successfully apply for a lottery grant which is going to be used to transform the main concrete structure into an arts and exhibition space for future use. It recently held the sold out ‘Hinterland’ light show, which many people deemed to be a great success.
The future of St Peter’s Seminary is looking bright.
