    Thanks so much for that information. I will keep an eye out for those McParland publications. I think the 1980 pamphlet was referred to earlier in this thread.

    Indeed, it is something of an indictment, just how little information is available in Ireland on the planning and execution of historic buildings and in particular regarding those buildings which are long since demolished or indeed schemes which remained unbuilt. That is a general statement but particularly in this case concerning an institution which is supposedly devoted to the examination of such matters.

    Just looking through the buildings of Trinity on archiseek, and wondering what date of construction was:

    My understanding is that they used the buildings of the Abbey for a time so I assume this is the first part of the college built specifically? No?

    Interesting piece on an architectural model of the current west front
