Amateur architect. The Rev. Deane Hoare, a son of Robert Hoare of Cork and his wife Jane, née Newenham, was born in Cork in 1724 and admitted to Trinity College, Dublin, in 1740. He became a curate at St Mary's Cathedral, Limerick, and rector of Killeely in the north liberties of the city, where he 'designed and built a handsome house on the glebe grounds for the Incumbents' in 1768.(1) He is also said to have designed the Assembly Rooms in Limerick in 1769.(2) According to Burke's Commoners of Great Britain and Ireland, he was a 'gentleman of great benevolence and philanthropy, under whose superintendance the cathedral of Limerick was much improved and beautified in 1752'. He also designed the House of Industry on the North Strand, begun in 1774.(3) He died in Limerick in 1800. He was married to Susan Ingram and had two sons in holy orders.
