DUBLIN CONSERVATIVE CLUB ORIGINALLY WAS THE HOME OF REST FOR PROTESTANT DYING
There is an impressive stone building on Camden Row which was the “Home of Rest for Protestant Dying”. In 1962 it became the home of the Dublin Conservative Club. According to a friend that lives in the area the Dublin Conservative Club is a Protestant working-class association. Only men can be members but women can attend [I have not been able to verify this claim].
I have found some information about the building:
Built in 1904 and described as “New home, ‘a splendid new building…the gift of an anonymous donor’. £5000 received from anonymous friend of Archbishop of Dublin in England. Formally opened by Lord Lieutenant, 10 Jun 1904. Contractor: J. & P. Good.”
Architect: Charles Astley Owen
