Architect, of Dublin, listed as such in Wilson's Dublin Directory for 1833 with an address at 33 Peter Street and for 1835 with an address at 10 Cork Hill. An H. Kelly of 33 Peter Street, exhibited architectural designs at the Royal Hibernian Academy between 1827 and 1833.(1) In 1826 H. Kelly (no address given) had exhibited a design for an entrance to a nobleman's park, referring the viewer to J.B. Papworth's prescription for such an entrance in his Rural Residences (1818), p. 81. An article which appeared in the Irish Builder in 1871(2) identifies an architect and measurer called Kelly, of Peter Street, as the author of a satirical pamphlet on the subject of contemporary architecture which appeared in the reign of George IV. This pamphlet is presumably An Essay on the rise and progress of architectural taste in Dublin…by Nicholson Numskull Esq, which was published in Dublin in 1832.(3)
See also HUGH KELLY , also of 33 Peter Street, with whom there may be some confusion.
