Dictionary of Irish Architects 1720 - 1940

Bricklayer and builder, of Dublin. Joseph Glynn, who was born circa 1728, appears in Wilson's Dublin Directory for 1784, with an address at 33 Mary Street and may perhaps be the same person as the Joseph Glynn, builder, of Capel Street, Dublin, who appears in the 1774 edition of the same directory. Joseph Glynn of Mary Street died on 23 May 1791 in his sixty-third year and was buried in Palmerstown graveyard. His daughter Mrs Honoria Walsh was buried in the same plot in 1801.(1)
