The SPAB believes in equality and abhors racism. Some historic monuments were put up to celebrate those whose lives involved profit from inequality or slavery. We understand that these monuments carry deep and painful associations.
The first John Betjeman Award in Ireland recognises sensitive external stonework conservation.
A huge thank you to our members, donors, grant givers and followers who have not wavered in their support of the SPAB through the lockdown months. We would also like to offer our heartfelt thanks to the National Lottery players who made the National Lottery heritage Fund Emergency Grants possible.
Don’t forget that we will be closing the office on 23rd December for the Christmas break, re-opening 4th January. From everyone at the SPAB we wish you a very merry Christmas and a happy new year!
