1919 – Former Hibernian Bank, O’Connell Street Lower, Dublin

Architect: Ralph H. Byrne



Built after the previous branch of the Hibernian Bank was destroyed in the fighting during the 1916 Easter Rising. The previous building was by O’Neill & Byrne and was constructed from a former W.G. Mooney public house in 1878. The replacement building was Ralph H. Byrne with carvings by C.W. Harrison & Sons. It is still in use by a financial institution today and for many years, its recognisable outline was part of their logo.
