The original architect for the chapel was William Hague Jr., a well-known Irish Roman Catholic ecclesiastical architect, who was active throughout mid- to late-nineteenth-century Ireland, predominantly in Ulster. Throughout his life, he designed a multitude of Roman Catholic churches, many in the French Gothic style. Such influence is replicated in his work on the church in Newtownforbes.
