Lime & Pointing (CYDPH talk 8)

27.04.2021, 13:00 P.M.

The Importance of Using Lime & Historic Pointing Techniques in Dublin by Grainne Shaffrey, Principal, Shaffrey Architects, Grade I RIAI Conservation Practice and co-author of the Department'’s Advice Series: A Guide to the Repair of Historic Brick.

This lecture forms part of the Irish Georgian Society and Dublin City Council's Conserving your Dublin Period House talks series.

Delivered by conservation experts the talks will provide an overview of the history and significance of Dublin’s period houses and practical advice on their conservation. Attendance at the talks will greatly benefit owners of all periods and types of houses, from the modest Edwardian artisan dwelling to the substantial red-bricks of the Victorian suburbs and the fine townhouses of our Georgian city squares, providing an ‘A to Z’ for their care and conservation.

The talks will be of particular interest to owners of houses listed as Protected Structures or located within Architectural Conservation Areas.

These talks will also benefit building professionals and practitioners and are approved for CPD by the Royal Institute of the Architects of Ireland, Engineers Ireland and the CIF's Heritage Contractors.

Talk subscribers will be sent a Zoom link to the pre-recorded talk at 1pm on Tuesday, which is available to watch for seven days from issue. After seven days the link will expire and cannot be reissued.
