Sir Thomas Deane (1792-1871)

His obituary in The Irish Builder was relatively short but read, “Since our last issue the death of Sir Thomas Deane has taken place in this city. The deceased architect was in his eightieth year. He was knighted, when sheriff of Cork, by the Duke of Northumberland, when on his viceregal visit to that city, in 1830. Sir Thomas Deane’s father, the late Alexander Deane, Esq., was also an architect. Sir Thomas Deane’s works are many, public and private, through Ireland ; and on another occasion we may give an enumeration of them, with some fuller particulars of ourmuch-regretted and much-respected native architect.”
