We support scholarship and promote awareness of how science and the humanities enrich our lives and benefit society. We believe that good research needs to be promoted, sustained and communicated.

About Grangegorman Histories

In the past 250 years, Grangegorman has been the site of a workhouse, a hospital and a prison, and now it is to be integrated into the city as a health and education campus.  The buildings of Grangegorman stand as architectural monuments to that past and its complex histories.  The Grangegorman Histories diverse programme of events, publications and learning opportunities will help to uncover the history of the site and surrounding communities.  The Grangegorman Development Agency (GDA) and the Royal Irish Academy will lead this public history programme of research and shared discovery.  The Grangegorman Histories Expert Working Group has been appointed to realise the programme.
