I believe it’s the stairs inside, and some other limited fabric, that dates it to the 1680s rather than roof profile. Haven’t been in No. 9 myself, but I’ve been in 21. Great chunky staircase and some ancient beams in the ground floor.

There’s another funny little ‘quarter gable’ type thing to the rear of a house dated to the 1740s at 130 Thomas Street, seen here (to the left) before the ‘Potter’s Bar’ scheme on Bridgefoot Street was built in the early ’00s. You never know what you’ll find in Dublin’s buildings …

And no, that’s not a billboard accross the portico of St. Catherine’s. It’s just a trick of perspective. JC Decaux haven’t plumbed those depths ….. yet.
