Buildings of Ireland Charitable Trust Authors Workshop

The Buildings of Ireland volumes constitute an important series of architectural guides to Irish historic buildings and towns. Published by Yale University Press, the series is directed by the Buildings of Ireland Charitable Trust. Four volumes have been published to date and two more are close to completion.

With six volumes now accounted for, the trust hopes to be able to widen the pool of specialist authors who might at a future date contribute to the series and, with this in mind, will be holding an Authors Workshop for potential/future authors at the Irish Architectural Archive, on Tuesday 16th February from 2 pm to 4 pm.
