Taken for Granted Seminar 22nd November 2018

Fri, 19 Oct 2018 00:05:00 IST

The Irish Georgian Society, in association with The Heritage Council, is presenting Taken for Granted, a one-day seminar examining the critical role grants play in preserving and protecting our architectural heritage.  The seminar will showcase, through a number of case studies, best conservation practice achieved and the technical lessons learnt through funding provided by the Irish Georgian Society, The Heritage Council, the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, and other government and non-government grant-giving bodies.

Case studies will include the conservation of an eighteenth-century stained glass window by Thomas Jervais (d. 1799) in Agher Church, County Meath; the repair of the plasterwork ceiling of Collon Church in County Louth; the conservation of a thatched house at Lenankeel, County Donegal; the repair of the Coade stone lion on the Mote Park Gate in County Roscommon; and the lime wig repointing of the Irish Georgian Society's headquarters at the City Assembly House in Dublin.

The Taken for Granted seminar will take place at the City Assembly House, 58 South William Street, Dublin 2, on Thursday 22nd November 2018.  The seminar costs €60 and booking is essential.  Booking can be made through the Irish Georgian Society using the attached form: Taken for Granted Seminar 2018 Booking Form
