      Just came across a picture of the interior of the Grand Lyric Hall – The Tivoli Variety Theatre started life as the Conciliation Hall in 1834. It was built as a meeting place for Daniel O’Connell’s Repeal Association. In 1897, it was rebuilt as a concert hall called the Grand Lyric Hall and changed name to the Lyric Theatre of Varieties the following year. It became known as the Tivloi in 1901. It was a modest sized music hall with seating for 1252 patrons. The Tivoli closed in 1928 and the building became the home of the Irish Press newspaper group.

      Note that the Grand Lyric Hall wasn’t demolished to build that heap; the even worse heap in the centre of this photo was:

      Dublin simply doesn’t have a theatre hall as beautiful as that now. So much for “progress”
