Of course, they’d all probably have approved thoroughly of the proposed “development plans” for Dublin i.e. the destruction of many beautiful buildings which was just about to get underway then. Frank McDonald’s great book “The Destruction of Dublin” (1985) detailed it all, including naming many of the culprits. Pity it’s long out of print, and I’ve long lost my own copy. Sad reading.
