An unexecuted design after an architectural competition to design a complex of museum and library around Leinster House (then part of the Royal Dublin Society).

The results of the original architecture competition were scrapped after it was found out that all the entrants were “minor” English architects including E.W. Godwin. Eventually Thomas Newenham Deane was selected as architect.
