City Assembly House update - June 2017

Cleaning between joists in the Exhibition Room prior to the installation of soundproofing.

Formwork for pouring of the lift pit; a challenging job to undertake given the difficulties of bringing concrete down into the basement.

A further corner fireplace has been revealed in the basement following the removal of plasterboarding. Regrettably no evidence of a chimneypiece was found as with the neighbouring room though it is evident that a stove may have been installed in the last fifty years.

This project is being undertaken in partnership with Dublin City Council through the support of the Gilbert & Ildiko Butler Family Foundation, the Jerome L Greene Foundation, The Department of Arts, Heritage, Rural, Regional & Gaeltacht Affairs, and the generosity of foundations and supporters in Ireland, the USA and the UK.
