The 4-storey house on the left foreground of Newgrange’s pic is still standing, isn’t it?

Just a general point on this thread: While we are calling these gable-fronted houses of Dublin “Dutch Billys”, probably most of them date to after King Billy’s reign (1689-1702). Probably many of them seen in old photographs aren’t any older than about 1730.

And of course anything after 1715 is technically “Georgian”.
