About this event

After a very long break we're thrilled to be back, with a long anticipated summer event! This Young Irish Georgians tour will visit a selection of South city locations featured in Lost Ireland (Pavilion Books/Rizzoli, 2021). Drawing on the author’s extensive knowledge of photographic archives, this tour will explore some of the city's former sites of leisure, entertainment and politics. The itinerary will include the site of the city’s last Turkish baths; the much vandalised statue of King William of Orange III and the location of one of Ireland’s first telephone boxes.

Dr. Orla Fitzpatrick is a librarian and photographic historian from Dublin. She has a PhD from Ulster University and a Masters in Design History from the National College of Art and Design. She has worked in librarianship since 1994. Her recent publication, Lost Ireland (Pavilion Books/Rizzoli, 2021) examines lost aspects of Ireland’s social and cultural heritage through archival photographs, and is available to purchase from the Irish Georgian Society's bookshop.

This event is open to Young Irish Georgian members of the Irish Georgian Society. YIG events are for members under the age of 40.
