does anyone know of any building developments (or individual buildings) around the city where salvaged bricks have been used?

No Idea, but you could try contacting the Architectural Salavage company to see if they can point out someone who bought a lot of bricks of them. Personally I’ve always believed that most architectural salvage like bricks and stonework ends up in gardens.

O’Donnell and Tuomey’s Ranelagh school, for one.

Are you sure?
They don’t look salvaged.

Oh yes. Just read any of the architects’ descriptions of the building.

There are a lot of Reclaimed bricks
used in pubs around the city, and you should have no trouble finding one on a good night out !!

…not to mention recycled urinals!

where would be a good place to go for salvaged dolphin’s barn brick?
i’ve just pulled a few out of a skip, but apparently all the good stuff is buried at the bottom.

32 the coombe. bricks salvaged from the demolition of a building at dublin castle.

cheers, i’ve just been skip surfing.
got about 60 bricks of varying condition, apparently all the good stuff is buried. i need to undo some damage a previous owner of my place did to the front of the house. all i need now is to find a brickie. and then somehow pay him.

The Widow Scalons pub on Pearse Street is being demolished in a kind of “dismantle it” way.
It was a Georgain building underneath all that render. . . . you might get some brown and yellow bricks there.

Stone Brokers in Dalkey
I think they are still in business if not there is a good salvage yard on the Curragh

the damage done i want to repair is around the door – a previous owner had the place pebbledashed, but the area around the door needed to be hacked back so the pebbledash didn’t swamp the frame. is it feasible to have the mutilated bricks replaced?

g’way and buy some new bricks you cheapskate.
June 30, 2006 at 11:01 am #713809
Now you Sw1
If all else fails go to the Victorian Salvage Company on Townsend Street who will charge you a multiple of what new bricks cost

anyone know how much i might expect to pay to have the damage below repaired?
the ends of the bricks were hacked off to allow the rendering to be done – 14 courses each side of the door?
i have enough salvaged bricks to supply one for each of the 28 courses.
any tips on how to clean bricks would also be appreciated.
