Establishing a Suburb: Early building development in the Pembroke Estate outside the Grand Canal by Dr Eve McAulay

Building development first began in the Fitzwilliam estate in the middle of the 18th Century. It was concentrated within the line of what would become the Grand Canal. It was not until the 19th Century, when the estate became the Pembroke estate, that coherent planned building development spread beyond the confines the canal. This talk introduces some of the people involved, some of the problems encountered, and some of the building developments in the early years of the suburbanisation of the Pembroke estate.

Dr Eve McAulay is an archivist and works at the Irish Architectural Archive. She was awarded a PhD by Trinity College, Dublin, for her study on 'The origins and early development of the Pembroke estate outside the Grand Canal, 1816-1880'.
