Dictionary of Irish Architects 1720 - 1940

Engineer to Bailieborough Board of Guardians from the time of the setting up of a labourers' housing scheme under the Labourers Acts of 1883 onwards   He is presumably the same person as the Thomas Daniel, of 3 Virginia Street, Bailieborough, who in his 1901 census return describes himself as a sixty-year old publican, although, according to the notice of his death in the Irish Builder he was seventy when he died of blood poisoning in June 1908.(1)   At the time of the 1901 census he had a much younger wife, Catherine, two sons and three daughters.  Another person of this name, probably his younger son, Thomas Joseph,(2) was a candidate for the post of engineer to Bailieborough District Council in 1914.(3)



Address: 3 Virginia Street, Bailieborough, Co. Cavan, <=1901-=1911.
