The annual SPAB Ireland AGM will be held at RSAI, 63 Merrion Square, Dublin 2. The AGM is open to members and will be held at 6:30pm in the Helen Roe Theatre. This will be followed by a guest lecture by Caitríona O'Connor on the topic "Climate Change Adaptation at two World Heritage Sites – Skellig Michael and Petra". A dial-in option will also be provided for those who cannot attend in person.
Caitríona O'Connor is a Senior Conservation architect with Carrig Conservation based in Dublin. She has worked for several years in architectural conservation and heritage management in the UK, South-East Asia and Jordan. She is a World Heritage specialist having completed her MSc in World Heritage Conservation at UCD, and prior to returning to Ireland in 2022 she managed UNESCO’s programmes at the Petra World Heritage Site in Jordan.
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.
