The roots of our practice go back to the 1950s, when MA Doherty set up business in Donegal Town. In the seventy-odd years since, the practice has evolved through name, location and personnel changes but at the core our business remains the same- we work at a local level, designing buildings that benefit local people.
We don’t consider ourselves to have a particular style of work, because we focus on what we feel is right for each client and site. The common thread running through our work is a commitment to making people’s lives better through architecture- we want to use our imaginations and our technical abilities to create buildings that are sustainable, comfortable, light- filled and welcoming while being recognisably of this locality and region.

The overall Rann Mór Development has been remarkably successful in the last few years. This is in no small way due to the high quality of the design and the professional service provided by Allan Curran Architects Ltd and I look forward to completing the next phase of the development at Rann Mor Meadow to the same high standard.Daniel Doherty, Managing Director of George Doherty Construction (Irl) Ltd
