Given that Waterford’s quay still has a huge amount of old buildings standing, it’s likely that some of those gabled houses still exist behind later alterations, as you get in Dublin, eh?

Back to Dublin for a minute.

Cheers for putting up the 10 Mill St photo, gunter. See what you mean about the quality, though!!

A drawing from the mid 80s shows the same last house on Hendrick Street (looking towards Haymarket with St Michan’s tower in the background) with original flush window frames and something odd going on with the entrance door, all of which were dumped or mutilated in the renovation. Back in the 1990s this probably counted as a ‘conservation gain’,

On the subject of Hendrick Street, this proposed development lodged in December for the adjoining site to the east got a right drubbing of a refusal in February: <a href=">%20Ref. 6660/07

Around the corner in Queen Street, this building (arrow) is another early ‘suspect’.
