  • Administrative History ↴

    Architectural practice of 20 Suffolk St, Dublin, which took its name from the partnership formed between William Henry Byrne and his son Ralph Henry Byrne on 10 April 1902. The practice, which kept the same name until its closure in 2006, retained in its archives a large quantity of architectural drawings dating back to the early 1880s when William Henry Byrne was in partnership with John O'Neill. They did architectural drawings for many churches in the Ballinasloe area in the late nineteenth/early twentieth centuries.
