Irish Georgian Society: Architectural Gems Rescued

We saw lots of Georgian buildings on our trip to Dublin in August, and many of the best-preserved must have benefited from the work of the Irish Georgian Society:

Now observing its 50th year with a series of celebrations and a lavishly illustrated book, the revived Irish Georgian Society has been credited with restoring dozens of architectural gems across Ireland, from a former union hall for Dublin tailors to the country’s oldest Palladian house. (The society’s early preservation efforts focused on Georgian Dublin, but in later years it expanded its mission to cover noteworthy buildings from any period.) Perhaps more impressively, the group has helped bring about a national change of heart regarding Irish architecture.
