Moving Foundations, the Large Houses of Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown. A new publication as well as exhibit at dlr LexIcon

An Cathaoirleach, Cllr. Lettie McCarthy, has introduced a new publication and accompanying exhibit in dlr LexIcon, Degree 3, running till February 9, 2022, composes Amy Rohu.

Moving Structures– The Huge Houses of Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown discovers the history of some of the huge homes of the county including the 3 houses that are handled by dlr County Council at Marlay, Cabinteely and also Fernhill. Edited by the dlr Historian in House, David Gunning, contributors to the book include Peter Pearson, Rob Goodbody, Georgina Sweetnam, Nicola Kelly and also Dr. Deirdre Raftery.


At the launch, An Cathaoirleach claimed:” What’s clear from guide as well as exhibition is that the area had more than its reasonable share of big residences, maritime manors, and also coastal rental properties, which lots of terrific homes in the location still stand, albeit in more built up areas. The publication reveals that there are several opportunities of examination and also research study which continues to be to be done on individual residential properties. I think this book and also display screen loses a brand-new light on the large houses of our area, especially during the innovative era, and also enhances the existing analysis of these residential or commercial properties.”

Guide and exhibition are two elements of a bigger Years of Centenaries program sustained by Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council through dlr Heritage, and also moneyed by the Dept. of Tourist, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sports and Media.

Guide is readily available to purchase Dubray Books, Dún Laoghaire or dlr LexIcon for EUR15.00.
