The front of Portmahon House, Rialto, Co.Dublin.



Portmahon House.
Photo from the period when W.T. Cosgrave was President of the Executive Council (1922-32).
Photo is by John Keaney, one of W.T.'s army drivers. Provided here courtesy of his daughter Mary Quinn.
Liam Cosgrave had thought the ground-floor extension at front LHS was new, but this photo shows it is old.
