Dictionary of Irish Architects 1720 - 1940

Architect, who, according to Maurice Craig, citing information from the owner, designed Dysart, Co. Westmeath (1757), for Nicholas Ogle.(1)  No other buildings by him are recorded and nothing else is known about him.  He was presumably related to HENRY PENTLAND HENRY PENTLAND ;  indeed Henry Pentland seems more likely to have been the architect of this house as also of nearby Wilson's Hospital, Multyfarnham.
