Irish Georgian Society

Show / Hide Menu


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 13th October, The Casino in Chicago was the elegant setting for the second Irish Georgian Society Gala Dinner. Long time Chicago Committee member and former American Board Member Rosie O'Neill, was honoured for her support of the Society over the last forty plus years and was presented with the Society of Artists medal in recognition of all that she has done promoting the work of the Society. Over 150 people attended this dinner to honour Ms. O'Neill  and to meet with Sir David Davies and Mr. William Laffan. A most enjoyable post party was held afterwards in the Red Room of The Casino, hosted by Chicago Committee member, Cheri Lawrence.
