The vision of the Irish Georgian Society is to conserve, protect and foster a keen interest and a respect for Ireland’s architectural heritage and decorative arts. These aims are achieved through its scholarly and conservation education programmes, through its support of conservation projects and planning issues, and vitally, through its members and their activities.

On Sunday 21st August, a Songs of Praise afternoon was held at Agher Church to commemorate the reinstatement of the Thomas Jervais window there. York Glaziers Trust reinstalled the window at Agher last week (15-19th August), with the Irish conservator and YGT trainee Emma Newman.

This project was funded through grants and donations from The Heritage Council, Department of Arts Heritage & the Gaeltacht through the Built Heritage Investment Scheme 2016, The Primrose Trust, IGS London Chapter, IGS New York Chapter, IGS Chicago Chapter, Orla Coleman (IGS New York), Mary Lynn Cooney (IGS Chicago), Thomas Cooney (IGS Chicago), Arthur Wellesley, 9th Duke of Wellington, Select Vestry of Rathmoylan Union of Parishes and Meath County Council.

Project champion and co-ordinator was Deirdre McDermott (conservation architect, planner, urbanist and IGS volunteer) to whom the Irish Georgian Society is most grateful.
