IGS & UAHS Summer School – Historic Buildings of Armagh & Monaghan
The Irish Georgian Society and the Ulster Architectural Heritage Society are coming together for the first time to provide a cross-border summer school in Armagh and Monaghan called ‘Conservation without Frontiers: Historic Buildings of Armagh & Monaghan in Context’. Taking place over three days from the 25th to the 27th of June, 2015, the event is intended for enthusiasts, practitioners and students who want to debate and discuss issues relating to our Irish heritage in the context of the two counties.
Leaders of the summer school will include architects and architectural historians, conservation officers and heritage officers, planners and well known academics.
Key themes will be:
OUR CATHEDRALS: Ecclesiastical reordering and liturgical changes in Saint Macartan’s, Monaghan, and Saint Patrick’s, Armagh, and in the Church of Ireland
PLANNING OUR CONSERVATION AREAS: Conservation areas in The Mall and Market Square, Armagh, and architectural conservation areas in Church Square, The Diamond, and Market Square, Monaghan
HERITAGE: Regeneration through the restoration of houses in Armagh and the introduction of new housing in Glaslough, Monaghan
COMMUNITY CONSERVATION and PUBLIC REGENERATION: Community conservation projects at Saint Peter’s Church, Laragh, and Dartrey Mausoleum, and public regeneration projects at Palace Demesne and the Women’s Prison, Armagh
