Mulholland, Roger (1740–1818). The most distinguished architect working in Belfast in the late C18, he was also an important developer, building many houses in Donegall Place and elsewhere in the growing Georgian town. He designed (probably) the First Presbyterian Church, Dunmurry, Co. Antrim (1779—complete with Gibbs surrounds), the beautiful elliptical Presbyterian Church, Rosemary Street (1781–3—a more definite attribution), the White Linen Hall (1785–1802—again undocumented, and later demolished to make way for the City Hall) and the Sublimely grim House of Correction (1814–18—demolished), all in Belfast.
