Further Reading



Published information on Padraic Gregory is thin, but the following sources were essential in compiling this website and can be consulted for further reading:

This project was originally suggested by an article 'A Gifted Poet and Architect' by Dr. Paul Larmour in the September/October 1995 issue of Perspective magazine.

Dr. Larmour kindly referred me to a 1987 dissertation by Brendan Carabine, held at the Architecture Library at Queen's University Belfast for further information. Carabine's study was essential for it's chronology, in identifying Gregory's extant buildings, and also for the remarkable press cuttings section, copied directly from a scrapbook in the possession of Gregory's son Brian in the 1980s.

Copies of Gregory's 'Ulster Songs and Ballads'; 'Complete Collected Ulster Ballads'; and 'The Ulster Folk', are available at Belfast Central Library Irish Studies Department.

Charles Brett's 'Buildings of Belfast', 1985; and Marcus Patton's 'Central Belfast An Historical Gazetter', 1993, provided interesting objective and anecdotal information on some of the Belfast churches.

The recording of 'Padraic The Fiddler' is available on the CD John McCormack, 'Where The River Shannon Flows'.
