of Dublin

1794 Advert: 'JAMES HEAVISID, having the railing, intended far Merrion-square, now left on hands, will dispose of the whole, or part, considerably under value ; Great attention having been paid to the execution of this work, it will be found of a superior quality to any hitherto attempted in cast iron, being neatly ornamented, and so nearly malleable as to bear bending and straightening when cold, by the hammer.
LUKE-STREET FOUNDERY. The business continued as usual, in the most extensive manner. Feb. 21. 1794.'[1]

1794 Advert: 'IRON FOUNDERY, LUKE-STREET. MESSRS. HEAVISIDS, will sell by Auction, on Monday the 14th April, the entire stock, tools, and utensils, belonging to the Foundery. Particulars too numerous to insert.
N. B. The railing intended for Merrion-square, would be well worth the attention of any nobleman or gentleman wishing to rail in a demesne. All persons to whom they are indebted, are requested to furnish their accounts.'[2]

1795 Advert: 'FOUNDERY AND IRON- WORKS, Lime-street.
JAMES HEAVISID and Co. having nearly completed a most extensive Foundery and Iron Work in Lime-street, near the Marine School, Rogerson's-quay, beg leave to inform their friends and the public, they will be ready to execute orders when the present embargo ceases; and to prevent, if possible, the frequent disappointments and defects which are commonly experienced, this work will be conducted on an entire new plan, and the best workmen in England and Ireland employed. May 1, 1795.'[3]
