Ashlin, George Coppinger

Ashlin, George Coppinger (1837–1921). A pupil and partner (1860–9) of E. W. Pugin, whose sister he married. He later formed a partnership with Peter Paul Pugin (1851–1904) and Cuthbert Welby Pugin (1840–1928), and later still (1902–21) with Thomas A. Coleman (d. 1950). He designed numerous buildings for the RC Church, but his masterpiece must be the RC Cathedral, Cobh, Co. Cork (1867–1902), designed with E. W. Pugin, and beautifully sited above the harbour. Ashlin's rich screens and other fittings within the RC Cathedral at Armagh were partially destroyed in 1977–82 during the re-ordering following Vatican 2. His Lombardic choir with apse and side-chapels at the RC Cathedral, Skibbereen, Co. Cork, deserves note, as does his handsome steeple at St Eugene's RC Cathedral, Londonderry (1900). He completed A. W. N. Pugin's RC Cathedral at Killarney, including the spire, and embellished J. J. McCarthy's Lombardic Romanesque RC Cathedral in Thurles, Co Tipperary. His output was prodigious.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
