Trench states: "The Prize so liberally offered by His Excellency the Marquess of Abercorn, through the Royal Agricultural Society of Ireland, for the best design of a Labourers Cottage not having been awarded, but been still open to competition, no design can be issued by the Society for some months.
The following Plans of Cottages, with some explanatory remarks, have been printed in the hope that they may be of use to landowners who purpose building Labourers' Houses this year."
