Traditional farmhouses were an integral part of the Wicklow landscape. Since the 1960's new forms of buildings have dominated the countryside. However, hidden down overgrown lanes are many fascinating examples of old farmhouses preserving a wonderful array of traditional features, from thatched roofing to furniture and fittings. Christiaan Corlett is an archaeologist with the National Monmuments Service. He lives in Wicklow and has a particular interest in the archaeology, history and folklore of his native county.
Registration is from 6pm with the lecture beginning at 6.30pm
