About this Event

Kevin Clancy is a founding partner of Punch Consulting Engineering. Significant conservation projects in his career include Killua Castle, Boyle Abbey, King Johns Castle, Adare Manor and St Patricks Cathedral Dublin. One other project which captured the public imagination resulted from the fire which destroyed St Mels Cathedral on Christmas Eve in 2009. When it rose phoenix-like from the ashes five years later it became a signal of renewal for the Longford community and for Ireland. Kevin's talk will share insights on both the engineering challenges involved in such an iconic project and the opportunities which it can offer for renewal.
