Westport Study Day 2017

10.11.2017, 09:00 A.M.

Westport Study Day 2017: celebrating 250 years of the Browne family and the town of Westport. The Irish Georgian Society and Mayo County Council, in association with Westport Historical Society and Westport Tourism, are partnering to deliver a study day which will celebrate the history and heritage of Westport House and its planned Georgian town. 250 years ago Peter Browne of Westport House placed an advertisement in the Dublin Faulkner’s Journal, on St. Patrick’s Day 1767, advertising for tradesmen to construct the new town of Westport …and so began the genesis of one of Irelands greatest pieces of Georgian town planning.
