Join us in the Academy during Heritage Week for a cultural programme which includes the Library’s lunch-time lecture: ‘A century of Irish stamps’ with Stephen Ferguson, An Post Archivist and Museum Curator. Visit the Library’s current exhibition 'Window on the Irish soul – 100 years of Irish stamps', organised in collaboration with An Post Museum and Archive. The Irish Historic Towns Atlas (IHTA) are leading tours of some Dublin suburbs: South-East City, Drumcondra, Kilmainham, Rathmines and Clontarf. IHTA will also be launching a short video: ‘Placing our heritage’ previewing the forthcoming Irish Historic Towns Atlas of Cork, due to be published in November. Grangegorman Histories will present an illustrated lecture by Raymond Gillespie, MRIA ‘Grangegorman: a thousand years in the making’, focusing on the history of the unusual landscape that was Grangegorman before the institutions.
