Home Forums Ireland ‘Dutch Billys’ Re: Re: ‘Dutch Billys’


‘Dutch Billy’ isn’t a technical term Devin, it’s a nickname, but it seems to be an authentic nickname from the period in question.

The Brown Street house, or houses?, opposite the ‘gable fronted house’ (you see this is why we call them Billys) in newgrange’s picture is still there. The right hand half has a number of ‘Billy’ characteristics, but I don’t think it’s shown on Rocque, which puts it well into your Georgian period.

We did talk about this ages ago, I’m going to have to check your homework.
