Was this ever constructed? 1888 proposal.

Yes. That was the Grand Hotel. Flourished for many years. It had the first indoor swimming pool around these parts.. Its decline started in the late 1970s and early 1980s. . It then became the headquarters of a local multinational chemical company . It reopened in the late 1980s on a much reduced scale. I remember staying there on a company training project.
It then closed down and was converted into luxury appartments.

It was known locally as the Royal Doyle, after the owner, Denis. The only hotel in the world where I had (1970s) the opportunity to say to the waiter 'There's a fly in my soup' but could not do so because that notion caused us to laugh too much! Local liquid refreshment during Cork Week probably was one of the influences.....
