Early in the 20th century Mr. Frank Aldritt, of Maryborough,
Queens' County, Ireland (today Portlaoise, Co Laois, Eire) established a workshop in the middle of the town to built motor-cars.
He then turned to aviation and about 1908 he started to build a monoplane. It apparently flew a few hundred yards in 1912
but was excessively heavy and the project was shelved. In 1913 Mr. Aldritt died, and the aircraft was transferred to the workshop
rafters, where it remained for 50 years. It is now preserved in the Filching Manor Museum, Polegate, Sussex.
