Dictionary of Irish Architects 1720 - 1940

Architect or builder, active in the 1790s, who prepared designs for the glebe house at Galbally, Co. Limerick. His plan, elevation and notes among the Normanton papers in the Hampshire Record Office(1) presumably date from the period of Charles Agar's tenure of the bishopric of Cashel, 1779-1801. McGregor writes that the glebe house, which he describes as 'large and excellent', was built in 1794.(2)
