Dictionary of Irish Architects 1720 - 1940

Architect, of Dublin. George Francis Beckett, who was born on 15 April 1877, was the fourth son of JAMES BECKETT JAMES BECKETT , founder of the Dublin Master Builders' Association, and his wife, Frances (née Horner).(1) The account of 'Our President' in the AAI Green Book for 1919 describes his early enthusiasm for architecture: 'There was never a time in his recollection when he did not want to be an Architect. During the erection of the National Library and Museum, Beckett, then a boy, resided with his parents at No. 7 Kildare Street, adjoining the site of these buildings which were surrounded by a forest of scaffolding. [Beckett] soon discovered that it was possible to reach this scaffolding…on the way to the bedroom he occupied through, what he and his brothers called "the hole in the wall"; and on moonlight nights he was often engaged in a surreptitious inspection of Sir Thomas Deane's work, when his fond parents believed him to be wrapped in innocent slumber. One can picture him wandering over the scaffolding - an embryo architect.' Beckett was educated at Rathmines School, Dublin, before spending four years as a pupil of JAMES FRANKLIN FULLER JAMES FRANKLIN FULLER ; he then joined the office of Thomas Worthington & Son of Manchester. A fellow pupil in Worthington's office was the English architect John Harold Gibbons, with whom he went on a sketching tour in France and Italy. He returned to Dublin in 1897 and established an office at 97 Stephen's Green. In September 1919 he took CYRIL ASHLIN HARRINGTON  CYRIL ASHLIN HARRINGTON into partnership. The firm of BECKETT & BECKETT & amp; HARRINGTON  HARRINGTON continued to practise from the same address until circa 1973. Beckett himself retired from the partnership in 1950,(2) and died on 21 November 1961.(3)   He was buried in Dean's Grange cemetery.(4)

As an architect, according to his obituarist in the RIAI Year Book, Beckett was chiefly interested in ecclesiastical, domestic and industrial design and was probably at his happiest working on churches, of which he designed several for Methodist congregations. Much of his energy was taken up with the work of the Civics Institute of Ireland, which he joined at its annual general meeting on 21 May 1921, when he was elected to its Town Planning Section Committee. He was particularly concerned with the provision of children's public playgrounds and the problems of slum clearance. In 1923 he was appointed chairman of the organizing committee for the Dublin Civic Survey, which was published in in 1925. He served on the executive committee of the Civics Institute from 1923 until 1959, was honorary secretary from 1939-41 and vice-president from 1941 to 1953.(4)

Beckett married on 9 June 1902 Edith Alice, daughter of the Rev. J.O. Park, D.D.(5) He was survived by two daughters, Mrs D. Thorpe and Mrs Ormonde McConnell,(6) and a son, Donald P. Beckett, FRVSI, all of whom lived abroad.
