“Did You Notice”

Does your house have a boot scraper, fancy fascias, jostle stones at the gate (as you know they are always in pairs)? What is a benchmark and why is it important? What does your street name tell you about its history? What about the decorative masonry and ironwork in our neighbourhood? How would you know who made the railings? Seamus Cannon will focus attention on what is hidden in plain sight in our immediate neighbourhood and encourage you to see it in a new light.

Speaker: Seamus Cannon

Venue: Royal Marine Hotel, Dun Laoghaire

Time: 8 pm

FountainThe Dun Laoghaire Borough Historical Society was started by a number of people who came together out of a love of local environment, its history, and its environs. The first meeting was in the rooms of Dun Laoghaire Credit Union, at 21 Longford Terrace, Monkstown on the 21st April 1978.

The Dun Laoghaire Borough Historical Society is a Member of the Federation of Local History Societies and is supported by local business.
