Clontarf Historical Society upcoming talk
Claire is a member of the Clontarf Historical Society and has already spoken to the society last year on the subject of the houses in Clontarf listed in Lewis’ Topographical Dictionary. This year Claire will talk about those houses which were built later, like for example Blackheath House, Castilla and the Church of Ireland church. She will also mention some of the speculative building developments which were started in the 19th century by developers and builders. Claire has been researching the history of buildings in Clontarf for the past few years and the result of this research will be the basis of a book that is due to be published next month.
