Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown’s Historic Houses Course autumn 2017 The Irish Georgian Society, in association with Dún Laoghaire- Rathdown County Council, has assembled a team of leading conservation experts to deliver a course on the understanding, care and repair of Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown’s period and traditionally built houses.
