Dictionary of Irish Architects 1720 - 1940

Architect of the residence for the Master of the North Dublin Union Workhouse in 1898.(1) D.J. Morris may be the same person as the Mr Morris, who is described as architect to the North Dublin Union Workhouse in 1900(2) and as engineer to the North Dublin Rural District Council in1909 in connection with a labourers' housing scheme(3) and as the 'Mr D. Morris' who designed the isolation hospital at Portrane lunatic asylum in 1914.(4)  A Denis J. Morris was living at 41 Percy Place in the period 1896-1907,(5) but perhaps a more likely candidate is Denis Morris, an architect, surveyor and CE, of 53 Cabra Road, who appears in the 1901 and 1911 censuses.  According to the census returns he was born in Co. Dublin circa 1852 and was the father of WILLIAM MORRIS.  WILLIAM MORRIS.
