According to the exhibition catalogue, Hallam 'designed also Rockcorry (Co Monaghan)' (p.12, no. 46). There is no house of this name, and the information may be a distortion of information about - HALLAM of Rockcorry, who designed the Methodist Church in Cootehill, Co. Cavan, in 1868.(B 26, 5 Sep 1868, 661).
