Dictionary of Irish Architects 1720 - 1940

One of the entries in the Dublin Royal Exchange competition of 1768/9 was submitted under the name 'Lodge, No. 158'.(1) This is possibly a reference to the Irish masonic Lodge No. 158 which in the eighteenth century was a regimental lodge attached to the 9th Regiment of Dragoons. The lodge also admitted civilian members. The regiment, and therefore the lodge, may possibly have been based in Dublin at the time of the Royal Exchange competition (2)
