Event description

Description

Join Maeve Casserly, Historian-in-Residence with Dublin City Council for a walk around Dublin City Centre exploring the work and legacy of the Wide Streets Commission. Founded in 1757, the Commission is responsible for reshaping the medieval city and creating the Georgian Dublin we know today. This walk traces the evolution of the city from the widening of Dame Street and College Green to the creation of boulevards like Westmoreland and D'Olier Street. Discover the impact the Commission had on the people of Dublin and its lasting legacy on its landscape.Wide Street Commission drawing
