Thought it was interesting what his kids said about their own gaff being freezing cold.
Had to laugh – as he was saying this, in the same shot behind him was a discreet curved radiator installed around the foot of the window 🙂
As expected really, not much of his architecure work was shown given the other aspects of his life. What a great film that he took part in during the war years: ‘I want to join the Irish Republican Arrrrmy’ ‘Oirland is still partitioned don’t you know’ 😀

As for Carrolls trace, I don’t have any current pics as it is difficult to access on the main road, but this taken last year shows what the entire site now looks like – at the time this was the only part of the boundary that was reasonably clear of shrubbery.
It had reached about ten feet in some places, but mostly was around four/five feet.
The ditch that surrounds it, almost like a 20th century ha-ha, has been fully cleared of all this junk:
…and the lawns now sweep up to the road as originally intended 🙂
Not sure if the pool around Froemmel’s sculpture is filled or not though.
