Kavanagh of 28 Garville Avenue, Rathgar, studied architecture at University College, Dublin, obtaining the B. Arch degree in 1936.(1) Before graduating he submitted a design in the Department of Industry and Commerce competition, which showed, according to John O'Gorman, that he was 'obviously a much more capable designer than many of those of greater reputation and experience'.(2)   He was in partnership with HARRY ALLBERRY  HARRY ALLBERRY at 14 Molesworth Street from 1938 until 1940.
