1879 – Former Military Stables, Arbour Hill, Dublin



Twin rows of cavalry stables to the rear of Collins Barracks with a cobbled central lane. Fine external stonework as the resident engineer, Major Hart, had a preference for cut stone. But when the building programme ran over budget, the War Office exerted its own preference for red brick, which was less expensive and was used for many new structures. Consequently some of the later stables are finished in brick.
