  1. Suggested amendment to line 7 of Message: . . . occupy the new Play Centre . . .

    Additional information from the webpage of the Iveagh Trust: “The final and most distinguished element in the great scheme [Iveagh Hostel, Iveagh Baths etc.] was the large, two-storied Play Centre or recreational hall built between 1912 – 1915”.
