Daniel Robertson

Posted on June 19th, 2007 by Sian Jones

Georgene Bramlage would like to know whether the Daniel Roberston described by Olda FitzGerald in Irish Gardens as a ‘landscape gardener’ who ‘fully restored the Killruddery garden in 1846, during the eleventh Earl’s occupation’, is the same person as the ‘architect’ who ‘introduced the Italianate style’ to Ireland at Johnston Castle, Castelboro, Powerscourt and Killruddery (a balustrade) mentioned in A History of Gardening in Ireland by Kenneth Lamb & Patrick Bowe. Is he also the Daniel Robertson described as an “architect who worked with Robert Adam in Oxford” in a Wikipedia article?

Georgina would also like to know if the ‘commission to design stone balustrading for a terrace at Killruddery…’ stated in A History of Gardening in Ireland by Kenneth Lamb & Patrick Bowe (footnote refers to Killruddery manuscripts) was ever completed?
