A while back, I spotted this in a wall near Seminary Buildings off Great William O’Brien Street. It is the only dark brick in an otherwise red wall.
I can make out ‘Buckley’ but no more from the wording – possibly ‘Hancock’. I have not yet come across a brick manufacturer called ‘Buckley’ – it remains on the ‘To Find Out More’ list.
Here’s hoping someone does know some more about this rogue brick.
