Architectural draughtsman who collaborated with ROBERT POOL in producing Views of the most remarkable public buildings, monuments and other edifices in the city of Dublin, delineated by Robert Pool and John Cash (Dublin, 1780). Both Pool and Cash had been students at the Dublin Society's School of Drawing in Architecture, Pool a little earlier than Cash, who was admitted to the school on 1 April 1773 and was awarded a premium as one of the four best 'answerers' on 26 May 1774.(1) In 1777, according to Craig, Pool and Cash laid before the Dublin Society the drawings which were to become the plates of their book. The Society gave its support to the publication, which at that stage was to have been called Eblana Depicta, and the authors duly dedicated the finished work to the Society.(2) The names of a Mr George Cash and a Mrs B. Cash, presumably relations of John Cash, appear in the list of subscribers to the book.
A person of this name married Isabella Tudor at St Werburgh's church, Dublin, on 19 February 1783.(3)
John Cash was a subscriber to Thomas Malton's, The Seats and Demesnes of the nobility and gentry of Ireland (Dublin, 1783-1794).
