A series of evening talks (6.30pm) delivered by the Irish Georgian Society, in partnership with Dublin City Council’s Heritage Office, in the Knight of Glin Exhibition Room, City Assembly House. This is a European Year of Cultural Heritage event supported by The Heritage Council. Following the Restoration (1660) Dublin became the second city, after London, of the British Empire, with major development and expansion in the Georgian period (1714-1830)  providing the institutional buildings and infrastructure, and setting out the city plan substantially as it survives today. Scholars will deliver research celebrating the works of Dublin’s great Georgian architects responsible for designing the classical buildings of Dublin during the reign of Kings George I to IV, and provide an understanding of their design, materials and construction, as well as placing them in their social, political and cultural context.
