The Irish Georgian Society in partnership with Ulster Architectural Heritage have announced the full programme for the upcoming Conservation Without Frontiers Summer School taking place from Thursday 20th to Saturday 22nd June 2019.

The theme of the summer school is Survival and Revival: Living Towns and Villages and Fermanagh.  The summer school will explore, through a series of talks and tours, the challenges facing Irish towns and the opportunities for enhancement through sustainable heritage-led regeneration benefitting built heritage, the local economy and the wider community.

The first day of talks will include "An Introduction to the Buildings of Fermanagh" by Professor Alastair Rowan and "Incentives for the Reuse of Vacant Buildings in Town Centres" by Dr. Philip Crowe.  The talks will be followed by an afternoon group visit around Enniskillen exploring the castle, courthouse and police station.

The second day of talks, taking place in the Farnham Street Masonic Hall in Cavan, will include "An Introduction to the Buildings of Cavan" by Kevin V. Mulligan and "Architectural Conservation Areas in Cavan" by Bronagh Lanigan.  The talks will be followed by an afternoon group visit to Cavan Town Hall where restoration is underway and a choice of tours to Belturbet and Butlersbridge or Baileborough and Cootehill.

A tour of See House, the former palace of the Bishop of Kilmore, is a highlight of the third day of the summer school.

The Conservation Without Frontiers Summer School is recognised as CPD by the Royal Institute of the Architects of Ireland.  The brochure, including links to online booking platforms, is available to download here: Conservation Without Frontiers 2019
