Dictionary of Irish Architects 1720 - 1940

Architect, of Dublin. Frederick Hayes was born in Dun Laoghaire, Co. Dublin, in 1872 or 1873;(1) his father was William Hayes, of 6 Sandycove Road, who practised as a solicitor at 29 Ormond Quay Lower. Hayes was educated at the Corrig School, Dun Laoghaire, and was then articled to WILLIAM MANSFIELD MITCHELL WILLIAM MANSFIELD MITCHELL . He had set up in independent practice by 1900, with premises at 24 Nassau Street, where his father's legal firm by then had its offices. In 1911 or 1912 the street was re-numbered and his address became 42 Nassau Street. As an architect he was engaged chiefly in commercial and domestic work. In 1949 he moved from 42 Nassau Street, where he had practised for half a century, to a new office at 15 St Stephen's Green. Apparently at the same time, he took J.L. O'Neill into partnership.(2) He retired from practice in 1953 and resigned from the RIAI in 1955 on account of ill health. He died in 1957 or 1958. He had married a daughter of John Mathews, one of the Taxing Masters for the Supreme Court, in 1911.(3)

Hayes's recreations were angling and gardening. Alfred Jones, who was a neighbour on the Burnaby Estate in Greystones, recalls the beautiful garden and much-admired rockery which Hayes created at his house in Quarry Road, and describes the two ducks, 'one of the horizontal type and one of the vertical type', which Hayes kept to control slugs and snails in the garden. Every evening when Hayes and Jones returned home on the Wexford Mail, which arrived at Greystones at 6.45, Hayes's ducks would be waiting for him at the junction of St Vincent Road and Portland Road, and would be rewarded for their vigil with a handful of grain from the bag which Hayes always carried in his pocket.(4)

Hayes's pupils and assistants included HUBERT JOHN LUNDY HUBERT JOHN LUNDY , ALFRED A. MURPHY  ALFRED A. MURPHY and WILLIAM HENRY O'DONNELL.  WILLIAM HENRY O'DONNELL.
