About Daniel Lowrey

Daniel Lowrey was the son of a weaver and was working as a dyer in Leeds in 1841. The 1851 census finds him in Liverpool. His profession is listed as “sings at concerts”.

According to an 1857 trade directory, Daniel became a publican. A copy of theatrical newspaper The Era, from 1859, reveals more about Daniel, in a listing that describes him as: “The greatest Irish singer of the present day, bar none.”

Daniel converted his pub to be the Malakoff Music Hall. He placed a statue of himself on the façade of his music hall, and in 1870 stood for election as an independent in a safe Conservative council ward.

In 1871, perhaps because his bid for office was treated as a bit of a joke by the local media, Daniel moved to Dublin. Or perhaps Daniel moved because he spotted an opportunity. Daniel became the proprietor of the Erin Music Hall, a far bigger and grander establishment than his Liverpool operation. It was successful, and today it’s called the Olympia.
