This book is welcome as a pioneering work which draws together the history of Victorian architecture in Ireland and, by bringing it to public attention in a direct way, establishes it firmly as a worthwhile part of Irish architectural history. The book is a gazetteer in the traditional sense, a list of entries for individual buildings on a county by county basis, heavily illustrated and prefaced by useful maps; the index at the back contains a valuable list of Irish Victorian architects and their works. The entries themselves cover all types of buildings, large and small, and reveal an encyclopedic knowledge of Ireland; and they are written with wit and some anecdote.Raheny: Bettyglen; St Assama#39;s; Col. ...
