Irish Architectural Archive/Buildings of Ireland Charitable Trust Online Lecture Series
The Buildings of Ireland is a research and publishing project, which aims to provide a detailed guide to all of the significant buildings on the island of Ireland, together with an authoritative history of the development of Irish architecture in each of the four provinces. Published by Yale University Press and part of the Pevsner Architectural Guides, each volume includes an introduction outlining the architectural development of the area followed by a topographical gazetteer giving an account of every important structure – churches, castles, public and commercial buildings, country houses, towns and villages and contemporary architecture – in each of the counties covered. Six volume shave been published to date, with eight more planned.
In two lectures, Frank Keohane, the author of Cork City and County which was published earlier this year, will guide us through the architectural heritage of Ireland’s second city and largest county. In the third lecture Dr Andrew Tierney, whose Central Leinster: Kildare, Laois and Offaly was published in 2019, will explore the richness of these often overlooked midlands counties.
These lectures were orignally recorded for Hertage Week 2020, and are being made accessible again for Culture Night 2020.
Lectures will be online only and available on 18 September 2020
