C.R. Cockerell & the architecture of Gilson Endowed School

On the Saturday night of the weekend of celebrations, architect and former pupil of the Gilson Endowed School Liam Tuite, gave a presentation on life and work of the architect CR Cockerell who was commissioned by LW Naper to build the Gilson School. Cockerell was also reponsible for the design of Loughcrew House, Crossdrum House and other notable buildings in the north Meath area.

The second part of Liam Tuite’s presentation dealt with some of the important buildings of Oldcastle, a town whose layout has not changed a great deal since the 19th Century.
