Standish Barry Lecture: Cottages Ornés of Georgian Ireland
Wednesday 15th November - The phenomenon of the cottage orné originated in mid-18th century England and rapidly found favour in Ireland and the Continent. Perhaps the only genre that spans the entire social spectrum, from the gate lodges of country estates culminating in George IV’s Royal Lodge and the so-called ‘Cottage Palace’ of Tsar Nicholas I. In this lecture author Roger White will set the cottages ornés of Georgian Ireland in their wider context.

Lecture: 17th & 18th Century Irish Glass and Ceramics
Tuesday 5th December  - For most of the last century it was believed that the history of fine-glass and ceramics manufacture in Ireland was well understood, but new documentary research and archaeological excavations in Dublin, Belfast and the United States have revealed that this country actually played a far more significant, international role than was previously recognised. Francis' lecture will present all of this new and exciting evidence, much of which remains as yet unpublished.
