Hey Gunther

Many thanks for posting the pics of Soanes proposed Bank of Ireland. It makes you wistful thinking what a beautiful assembly of building we would have had around College green had it been started a few years earlier!

I am always interested to see proposals that never quite got built. There are a number of famous Victorian examples, but this is one of the few Georgian I can think of. I know its off topic but I always wondered given the expansion of Dublin as a trade centre in the late 1700s, was it ever proposed to construct a purpose built City Hall? As opposed to converting the Royal Exchange.
