This image from the Mason Collection is intriguingly entitled “Swiss Instructors Cottage”, but where is it, and why is it called this? There have been a number of buildings with Swiss connections in Ireland, not least Geneva Barracks in Crooke, Co. Waterford, and of course, the “Swiss Cottages” in Santry. But this is an instructor??
