DOYLE, ROBERT 
- Born: - Died: -
Robert Doyle, described as a 'working architect', was employed by the Dublin Society between 1815 and 1820, receiving a salary of two guineas a week?(1) He produced plans for the Society's new fine arts department in 1815 and also for a botanical garden, for which he was paid in 1820.(2) He may be the Robert Doyle who was admitted to the Dublin Society's schools of drawing in architecture and figure drawing in 1798.(3)
A 'Rev. Robert Doyle' exhibited an architectural drawing of 'Mulvany's Glass-House' at the Hibernian Society of Artists in 1814, from an address at Upper Gloucester Place.(4) If the 'Reverend' title is a mistake, he could possibly be the same person.
