Thanks for the fill-in on those houses. Any idea how much if any of the original internal timber panelling survived the refurbishment? I recall them saying in the planning app. that they were going to keep what they could of it.

Picture here of the Lower Leeson Street house mentioned earlier in the thread, which was I understand the last Dutch Billy gable in Dublin to have survived in original, un-rebuilt early-18th century brick (third house from the end) – probably thanks in part to it being incorporated within a later flat parapet. Demolished, along with this whole stretch of Lr. Leeson St., by developer Patrick Gallagher in the early 1980s. A colleague of mine has a good quality colour slide of the house before demolition.
