Drew, Sir Thomas

Drew, Sir Thomas (1838–1910). Irish architect. Born in Belfast, he trained under Lanyon from 1854, and set up in practice in Dublin in 1875. He gained a reputation as a writer and antiquarian (he was President of the Royal Society of the Antiquaries of Ireland), and was noted for his robustly virile Gothic. His best work is the nave of St Anne's Anglican Cathedral, Belfast (from 1898), in a tough Romanesque Revival. As Diocesan Architect for Down, Connor, and Dromore, he designed many churches, including the fine Kilmore Church, Crossgar, Co. Down (1866–8), Drum-beg Parish Church, Co. Down (1868–70), St Jude's Church, Ormeau Road (1869–75), Belfast, and St Donard's Church, Dundrum, Co. Down (1886). He carried out major restorations at St Patrick's Cathedral, Dublin (1899–1904).

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
