17 May 2018, from 6pm
Following an exciting and active first year since formation, SPAB Ireland are holding the inaugural Annual General Meeting of the Irish branch of the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings.
The AGM will start at 6pm in the Irish Architectural Archive, Dublin, and is open to anyone interested in getting involved with SPAB Ireland.
Following this, at 7.15pm there will be a special guest lecture on Vernacular Architecture by Christiaan Corlett, an archaeologist with the National Monuments Service, and author of numerous books, including 'Wicklow's Traditional Farmhouses' and 'Antiquities of West Mayo'. This is sure to be a fascinating talk, highlighting vernacular buildings and traditional crafts, which make up such a vital part of Ireland's built heritage.
For those unable to make it to the AGM, you are more than welcome to come along to the lecture and wine reception. There is a suggested donation of €10 at the door for the evening for non-SPAB members.
About SPAB Ireland
has been established in 2017 as the inaugural Irish branch of the SPAB. Following the return of several recent Irish SPAB Fellows and Scholars to live and work in Ireland, the lack of an SPAB presence has been acutely felt. After a successful open meeting in February 2017, we have established a committee and have started planning how we will bring the SPAB philosophy and ethos to Ireland.
