Got sidetracked by these over the last day or so...

1821 - King George IV's Triumphal Entry into Dublin, 17 August

The George IV Royal Arch was erected in just 30 hours seemingly - designed by Richard Morrison

Ahhh Vicky was here in 1853 as well - so was there one erected then, or was it soon to go through the whole thing again?

Another painting, this time by William Turner de Londe, of King George IV visit to Dublin in 1821.
Rotunda Hospital is very clear in the background. Coming thirteen years after the erection of the Nelson Pillar and four years after the completion of the GPO it gave Sackville Street (previously called Drogheda Street and now O'Connell Street) a very classical look.

Also for the 1879 visit to Ireland of the Empress Elizabeth of Austria.

the Royal Dublin Fusilier's Arch (first termed "Traitors Gate" by Redmondites) at the Grafton Street corner which commemorates the Royal Dublin Fusiliers who died in the Second Boer War

strictly speaking a war memorial rather than the ceremonial archways constructed for royalty.

Always loved it though.

I wonder does this one in Listowel count -- or am I taking the biscuit ?

This is another view of one of those 1885 Belfast archways

These are scans from newspaper cuttings so the quality isn't great, but there's a reference in the caption to the book from which the image was taken.
