Drumcondra Library, Drummcondra, Dublin 9.
Drumcondra Library, opened on 19 February 1937. The building is attributed to Robert Sorley Lawrie, a Scottish architect working in the Dublin City Architect’s office under Horace O’Rourke. This simple building has Art Deco styling around the doors and simple modern window treatments. The Building was surrounded by a railing designed to match with the Art Deco door surrounds. These railings became very corroded and dangerous over time and Dublin City Council commissioned us to replace them as closely as possible. We took down and removed the old railing and replaced with a Galvanised and Powder Coated finished copy We believe that this railing will remain in situ far longer than the nearly 80 years of the original and probably never need painting. The old railings have gone to a new home a project for young people in the Drimnagh area and the best portions will be repaired and used in a venture scheduled for Summer 2020 Covid permitting.
