Cycling With… Ellen

1 Nov

Paddy Cahill and myself went for a cycle with Ellen Rowley. Ellen is an Architectural Historian who lives with her family in Ballybough, Dublin.

During our cycle, we talked to Ellen’s daughter Lillo, we looked at the architectural heritage in the north of Dublin (a beautiful part that often goes ignored), the architecture of the 20th Century and her special interest the social housing schemes by the former city architect Herbert Simms.

Ellen recently compiled a book of essays on Irish Architecture “i.e. Patterns of Thought”.
