Kilmacanogue History Society

The talk by Peter Pearson will consist of a tour of houses of North Wicklow and South Dublin - Old Rathdown you could say, and will include many photos of some well known and some lesser known places - often featuring the interiors.  Some of these places were visited in the company of Norman Colin and the lecture will be a modest tribute to his terrier-like determination to find out about the areas rich history and persuade people to present talks on a wide range of subjects!

Peter is a native of Dunlaoghaire and has been a professional painter and writer all his life.  His work is often inspired by th Built Heritage of Ireland, Dublin and surrounding counties.  He has been involved with many campaigns to save old buildings and has much practical experience in their restoration.  The saving of Drimnagh Castle and The Sick and Indigent Roomkeepers' House in Dublin are two such projects.

Peter has a new book out called Of Sean and Stone which features many of his paintings, some of which relate to the Built Heritage and landscape of this area.  There will be copies for sale on the night.

Note the start time is 8.00 p.m.

Entry €3.00 (€2.00 for members) - all welcome.
