About Walter John Gurly

Letter from George Bernard Shaw

1918 Shaw wrote: "The site is the best in Carlow for your purpose, even though the building dilapidated." "I can remember a day when my late uncle, Walter John Gurley, from whom I inherited the Assembly Rooms, returning from a visit to them (the only one he ever paid) and saying they would make an excellent Observatory as the movements of the heavenly bodies could be studied through the holes in the roof."
