Dictionary of Irish Architects 1720 - 1940

Stained glass and ecclesiastical art suppliers of London and Youghal, Co. Cork. The firm of Cox & Buckley was formed in 1881,(1) when MICHAEL J.C. BUCKLEY  MICHAEL J.C. BUCKLEY became a partner in the firm of COX & SON of London. The company eventually failed. It is not clear whether it operated simultaneously in London and Youghal or whether Buckley re-established it in Youghal after its failure in London and before he set up his new company, the Decorative Arts Guild of Youghal.(1) The windows in the apse of Cobh cathedral, Co. Cork, installed in the early 1890s, are credited to Cox & Buckley of Youghal in a guide to the cathedral.(2)
