1870 – Gatelodge and School, Dalkey, Co. Dublin

Architect: E.H. Carson


Combined gate-house and school building for St. Patrick’s Church of Ireland in Dalkey. Still standing today although missing the top of the small tower. A parishioner Charles Leslie presented the church with this building, built at his sole expense of over £1,000, to the design of Edward H. Carson. Over the years it has been added to, a parish hall was added in the 1880s.

“It is built in the most substantial manner of granite quarried on the site, and, as a specimen of wrought granite work is well worthy of a visit. The interior is fitted up in a superior manner. The lecture-hall has an open timber roof, stained and varnished.”
