Conservation without Frontiers: Historic Buildings of Armagh & Monaghan in Context - June 2015

For the first time the Ulster Architectural Heritage Society and the Irish Georgian Society are coming together to provide a cross border summer school. The event is for students, enthusiasts and practitioners who want to discuss and debate issues relating to Irish heritage in the context of Armagh and Monaghan. Leaders of the summer school will include well known academics, architectural historians, architects, planners, conservation and heritage officers. 

Key themes will be:

Cathedrals: ecclesiastical re-ordering and liturgical changes in St. Macartan's, Monaghan and St Patrick's, Armagh, and in the Church of Ireland.

Planning Conservation Areas: conservation areas in the Mall and Market Square, Armagh and architectural conservation areas in Market Square, Church Square, and Main Square, Monaghan.

Heritage and Housing: regeneration through the restoration of houses in Armagh and the introduction of new housing in Glaslough, Monaghan.

Community Conservation and Public Regeneration: featuring community conservation projects St Peter's, Laragh, and Dartrey Mausoleum; and public regeneration projects Palace Demesne and the Woman's Prison, Armagh.

Conservation without frontiers will take place from Thursday 25th - Saturday 27th June 2015.
