He lived where science lives

John Tyndall, born Leighlinbridge, Co Carlow succeeded Michael Faraday as Professor of physics at the Royal Institution 1853 – 1887. He lived in a flat at the Institution, 21 Abermarle Street, W1S 4BS.

Also, while you are on Abermarle Street, Daniel O’ Connell, ‘The Liberator’ and “Prophet of a coming time”, is commemorated by a blue plaque at number 14, where he lived for some time.
