Reply To: Andrew Devane designed house on Howth head
The book referred to is still on sale in the RIAI bookshop (cost ca Â£2). It is a little square book with a white cover, the catalogue of an exhibition of Irish architectural drawings and paintings put together by John Meagher in 1975 to mark European Architectural Heritage Year.
The house is ‘Journey’s End Lodge’, the Devane family home. The famous photo is of the cantilevered living room, which was Devane’s principal extension to the existing cottage/bungalow that was on the site when he bought it. The house was sold some years ago. It is on the south side of Howth Head, with views to Dublin Bay and the mountains, and is accessed directly off the main road.
