Roofs: history & conservation (CYDPH Talk 7)

16.04.2024, 13:00 P.M.

Taking Care of Traditional Roofs and their features by Nicola Matthews, Senior Architect, National Built Heritage Service, Department of Housing, Local Government & Heritage, and co-author of the Department’s Advice Series: A Guide to the Repair of Historic Roofs.

This is the seventh talk in the thirteen week Conserving your Dublin Period House talks series (download the full talks programme here)

The talks provide an appreciation 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 Architects of Ireland, Engineers Ireland, the Irish Planning Institute and the CIF Heritage Contractors.

Subscribers will be able to attend talks in person at the IGS's City Assembly House or online live through Zoom. All talk subscribers will receive a recording of the talk to watch at their convenience. The recording of each talk will be accessed for two-weeks after issue.

There will be an opportunity at the end of each talk to ask conservation questions relevant to your period house. Those watching the talk live online can submit their questions through the Zoom Q&A function.

The Conserving your Dublin Period House talks are presented in partnership with Dublin City Council.

The talks are an action of the Irish Georgian Society Conservation Education Programme which is supported by the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage. The Society also wishes to acknowledge the support The Heritage Council's Heritage Capacity Fund.
