Dictionary of Irish Architects 1720 - 1940

Civil engineer, of Dublin. Joseph Gannon, a science and engineering graduate,(1) was in practice in Dublin by the early 1920s. In 1932-33 he appears to have had a partner named Hackett - possibly HUGH HACKETT -  HUGH HACKETT - with whom he practised as Gannon & Hackett from 16 Henry Street.(2) This was also the address of the Civil Service Housing Association, for which Gannon designed housing during the same period. The Irish Builder reports no works by Gannon between 1935 and 1949, which raises the possibility that some or all of the works by 'J. Gannon' which are reported in that journal from 1949 until the early 1960s are by a different person of that name.

ICEI: elected associate member, 4 May 1925;(3) transferred to member, 7 November 1932;(4) on list of members for 1947 but not on that for 1948.

Address:(5) 46 Upper Mount Street, <=1926->=1930; 16 Henry Street, 1932-1933;(6) 19 South Circular Road, Islandbridge 1933->=1947.(7)
