Dictionary of Irish Architects 1720 - 1940

Architect and engineer, of Oldcastle, Co. Meath. Michael Grace, who is referred to in the Irish Builder as 'Michael Grace, junior' in 1908 and 1909, was engineer to Oldcastle Rural District Council from 1908,(1) to Oldcastle Board of Guardians in 1913-1914(2) and to Castlerahan Rural District Council by 1921.(3) He is also described as architect to Kells Urban District Council in 1913 and again in 1922,(4) although James Carolin is named in Thom's directories as the official town surveyor during the same period. He ran a private architectural and engineering practice in Oldcastle until 1952 or later. As reflected in the pages of the Irish Builder, his work consisted mainly of public housing, private houses, schools and minor works at Catholic churches in Meath and the neighbouring counties.
