See reports and schedule of works to be undertaken, including maps showing the location of the trees  to be felled ( approx 5% of the total number of street trees on these streets ) including felling where the trees are deemed to pose a danger to persons or property >>>

Molyneux Home, sandwiched between Christ Church and the Methodist Centenary Church on Upper Leeson Street, was sold in 2014. The building opened as The Molyneux Asylum for Blind Females in 1862.

It was built for purpose and designed by James Rawson Carroll. The Molyneux part of the title was transferred from an original Asylum built in 1815 in Dublin 8, in what was formerly the residence of Thomas Molyneux (1661-1733), whose sister-in- law, Lucy Domville, had been blind.
