Dictionary of Irish Architects 1720 - 1940

Amateur architect?  Malachy Daly, who came of a Co. Galway family, appears to have been resident in Rome during the 1850s and 1860s.  A plaster bust of him, executed in Rome in 1855, shows a man who was already no longer young.(1) In 1864 Daly, who was still based in Rome, submitted a design in the competition for the O'Connell monument in Dublin.(2)
