Home Forums Ireland ‘Dutch Billys’ Re: Re: Dutch Billy architecture in Dublin


10 Mill street is part of an application from Osprey Property(Eircom) to turn their large holding on Mill Street into Apartments. Part of the application mentions removing the existing flat roof from Nr. 10 and putting a slate roof back on it. There was a conservation report conducted by the Dublin Civic Trust – who no longer exist I think – but the website remains. .

I’m surpised to see 10 Mill Street in Red brick. I thought Red Brick only got popular in Victorian times.

Also on the way up to see it I came accross this other Meteor sponsored Dutch Billy.

However I don’t believe the everybody in Dublin in 1650/1700 lived in houses as grand as these. Is there a record of the vernaclular house for that period?
