Basic Biographical Details

Name: Ashlin & Coleman
Designation: Architectural practice
Started: 1902
Bio Notes: George Coppinger Ashlin was born at Carrigrenane House, Cork on 28 May 1837. He was educated at the College de St Servais, Liege, and at St Mary's College, Oscott. He was articled to Edward Welby Pugin between 1856 and 1860, concurrently studying at the Royal Academy Schools in 1858-60. He married Pugin's sister Mary at the end of his articles. When Pugin received the commission for SS Peter and Paul, Cork in 1859, Ashlin was made partner in charge of the Irish work of the firm in 1860, a position he retained until 1869 when the partnership was dissolved, perhaps because of Edward's reckless business ventures. From that year he practised on his own in Dublin and in 1902 entered into partnership with Thomas Aloysius Coleman. His nephew, Martin Ashlin, became a partner in 1908.

The elder Ashlin died at Killiney, County Dublin on 10 December 1921; Coleman died in 1950.
