25 Stafford Street, 1820
5 Church Lane, College Green, c.1822–29


Son of Vincenzo Panormo.

Lawrence states that Francis was 'the first to suggest increasing the diapason of the piano. This was realised by one of his three sons, Ferdinand Charles, who first performed on this new type of piano by Broadwood in 1822 at the Rotunda in Dublin'.

The advertisement for 'Mr. Panormo's Concert' with 'Mr. Panormo at the piano' in the Freeman's Journal on 17 April 1820, probably refers to Francis Panormo but may refer to Ferdinand.

[Dates and addresses differ according to sources: the Dublin Directories give the Church Lane address from 1823 to 1829. The Freeman's Journal gives the 25 Stafford Street address in 1820. Hogan gives the 5 Church Lane address c. 1820. Lawrence (without citation) gives 5 Churchlane in 1822.]
