SPAB Ireland

About In early 2017 a group of Irish SPAB Scholars and Fellows joined together to form SPAB Ireland. SPAB Ireland is the newest branch of the SPAB, and is an active and friendly community that aims to protect and promote the wonderful national built heritage on the whole island of Ireland. SPAB Ireland has its own committee, which currently consists of 12 members. If you would like to find out more about SPAB Ireland events and activities, or become a volunteer with SPAB Ireland, please join our mailing list to be kept up to date with current opportunities or email ireland@spab.org.uk
