Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown’s Historic Houses Course autumn 2017 The Irish Georgian Society, in association with Dún Laoghaire- Rathdown County Council, has assembled a team of leading conservation experts to deliver a course on the understanding, care and repair of Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown’s period and traditionally built houses. Talks will explain protected structure policy and legislation, the importance of preventative maintenance, the benefits of using lime, the correct care of historic ironwork, decorative plasterwork, bricks, roofs and windows, as well as addressing issues of how to sensitively extend your period house, tackle damp and implement energy efficient upgrades. The course will also benefit building professionals and practitioners and is recognised as CPD by the Royal Institute of Architects of Ireland, Engineers Ireland, the Irish Planning Institute and the Construction Industry Federation and its Register of Heritage Contractors. The talks will be held in the Royal St. George Yacht Club on six consecutive Wednesday evenings (7pm-9.30pm) in October and November, with two talks per evening.
