* Lutyens did very little work in
Ireland. Apart from Lambay Island,
and Heywood Gardens in Co. Leix,
little else is known. In fact the owns
of Howth Castle and Lambay agreed
to each go ahead with the work to
entice Lutyens to come to Dublin, and
both projects were carried out about
the same time.
* To acquire a single prototype
drawing or plan of any building by
Lutyens is a rare occurrence, but to
find a complete suite of drawings for
a stately home in Ireland, is indeed
