Dr. Andrew Tierney

Research Fellow (History Of Art)

 


I am an architectural historian with a broad chronological interest in building and design history. My research extends from late medieval Ireland to the high Victorian period, with a focus on Ireland and Britain. I have taught history and architectural history in UCD, NUI Maynooth, and the University of Liverpool. Since 2017 I have worked on several IRC funded research projects in the Departments of the History of Art and Architecture in Trinity College Dublin, including MAKING VICTORIAN DUBLIN, STONEBUILT IRELAND (in Geology) and CRAFTVALUE. In November 2023 I joined the research team for the ERC-funded project STONE-WORK (2023-2028). Recent publications include Central Leinster: Laois, Offaly and Kildare (Yale University Press, 2019), a volume in the series of Pevsner architectural guides, and Between Design and Making: architecture and craftsmanship 1630-1760, co-edited with Melanie Hayes.
