The Irish Georgian Society is delighted to announce that the Desmond Guinness Scholarship 2015 was awarded to Dr. Bláithín Hurley for her research into Daniel Maclise’s largely unpublished autobiography at the Royal Academy of Arts, London and his unpublished letters at the National Art Museum London.
The Desmond Guinness Scholarship Prize was awarded to Myles McKenna for his research on the Wentworth papers in the British Library where he will focus on the period 1729 to 1754, the period in which William James Conolly made alterations to Castletown.
Thanks are due to the London Chapter of the Irish Georgian Society for their generous contribution this year, which ensured that there was a €1,000 scholarship fund this year.
Christmas Party at Rathfarnham Castle
We would like to extend our thanks to all the members who braved Storm Desmond to join us at Rathfarnham Castle for our Christmas Party. After a dramatic intervention by the Dublin Fire Brigade, health and safety regulations meant we were not able to enjoy the festivities in their magnificent ballroom. The staff at the Castle did their utmost to accommodate us, and a merry time was had by all guests in the Castle's tearoom.
IGS members can visit Rathfarnham Castle any time of the year, and gain free entry by showing their IGS Membership card.
Dublin Docklands Morning Walking Tour
The walking tour begins on Grand Canal Quay and explores Grand Canal Dock from its development in the 18th century that changed the shape of Dublin to its recent rebirth that has created a new urban landscape for the city. Meet at Grand Canal Quay outside the Waterways Ireland Visitor Centre.
Wrap up warm, and you're welcome to turn up and pay on the day!
We are relaunching the IGS Members' Lottery in January 2016! Tickets are €20, and there is a draw every month. The total prize pot will be 40% of the ticket sales, while the remaining 60% goes to the Society's general funds.
In 2013 just over €5000 was raised through the Lottery so it is a valuable fundraising arm as well as offering Members the chance to win a cash prize every month.
