The Irish Georgian Society (IGS) and Ulster Architectural Heritage (UAH) invite you to take part in a one day summer school to visit key conservation projects in County Monaghan with Kevin Mulligan, Director of the 2015/2017 IGS/UAH Summer Schools and author of Buildings of South Ulster, and Shirley Clerkin, Heritage Officer for the County

This one day event, hosted by Irish Georgian Society and Ulster Architectural Heritage will visit key conservation projects in County Monaghan with Kevin Mulligan, Director of the 2015/2017 IGS/UAH Summer Schools and author of Buildings of South Ulster, and Shirley Clerkin, Heritage Officer for County Monaghan.

Buses will depart from Dublin & Belfast and meet in Monaghan at St Davnet's Hospital where our heritage discussions will begin. During the day we will look at buildings which have found new uses (eg. Clones Market House) and others awaiting an appropriate reuse. In addition we will be able to pay tribute to the remarkable community groups who have conserved the Rossmore mausoleum, Dartrey column and Lady Anne's Temple at Dartrey. It is unlikely that new uses could be found for these buildings! Our conservation stories will introduce us to new thinking and new heroes and heroines as well as the odd villain.
