I never thought I live to see Sinn Fein attempt to do their bit for Georgian Dublin:

. . . but in their timber window reinstatement at 44 Parnell Square, where did they get the idea that the first floor windows were tripartite?

A small number of three-bay Georgian houses incorporated the Kevin-Barry-Hall feature of a pair of larger windows at first floor level, [one on Merrion Sq. North, and another on Merrion Street] which I think has to be interpreted as a throwback to the popularity of this arrangement in the preceding ‘Billy’ phase, but surely it’s inconceivable, from a glazing proportion point of view, that any were tripartite. How are these decisions arived at? or do people just make it up as they go along.
