About a year ago I posted a query aboutr “An Stad”, a very run down ‘B&B’ on North Frederick Street. It didn’t whet anyone’s quodlibet. Seeing as you’re discussing ‘up the street’, I’d be really glad to know more of the background of this large Georgian with dim dangling lightbulbs, tatty faux lace curtains and the pain of shattered panes

Might it this be the one (with the broken window) –

If so, you are in luck in so far as I understand that the owners might be willing to consider offers. 😉

Shame about its current state – its probably worthy of inclusion in the “Endangered Georgian Dublin” thread 🙁

Somewhat undestated entrance – a Georgian townhouse with the doorway with only a hint of the brackets that would fully trumpet in the Regency era. And a little bit of the house’s history as well…
No 20 – “An Stad” – Used by Michael Collins (1890 – 1922); Irish Freedom Fighter and Signatory to the 1921 Anglo – Irish Treaty as a “safe house” during The War of Independence. See also Mountjoy Street, Mountjoy Square and Great Denmark Street for further connections with Collins.

Hope thats of help 🙂

Im sure DCC can revisit here to stick in some more unsuitable poles and visual shitage :rolleyes:
