Re: Re: ‘Dutch Billys’
The wider site is a fascinating pocket of semi-rural settlement in the midst of bustling Cork Street. A number of intact farm buildings to the rear are inaccessible, with the house to the mid-right a particular charmer. Interesting goings-on at the very top there too.
Wandering down the laneway at the side of the two Cork Street houses is like walking back in time into a photograph of the Royal Society of Antiquaries of Ireland. Just incredible.
I believe we are the last generation to experience this state of raw preservation, on a national level. Virtually all will be gone twenty/thirty years from now.
