      I have some questions about Avalon House on Aungier Street.
      I know George Bernard Shaw went to school here from 1869 to 1871. The school was closed in 1878
      The information on this site does not cover this period and I as far as I can tell the building was rebuilt
      I am trying to find some photos as information.
      If anyone can point me in the right direction I would really appreciate it

      I really like both parts of this building – it was used in that woeful ‘comedy’ ‘The Cassidys’ on Network 2 a while back as location for the local pub.
      Don’t know what was on the site before but the Irish Architectural Archive on Merrion Square may be able to help, not only with info but photos too – you can photocopy them too for personal use.

      Yes it is closed and I believe that they will have something very special for us in August.

      Why have they painted the new house’s windows black?
