Does Ireland Have a 20th Century Concrete-Based Cultural Heritage?

At the September Members meeting a group presentation was given, led by Angela Rolfe with contributors to the 20 of the 20th InnovaConcrete survey project (Peter Cox, Ellen Rowley, Shane O'Toole, Willie Cumming, Merlo Kelly, Gráinne Shaffrey), on the recent 20th century concrete structures ‘project’, InnovaConcrete 20 of the 20th. This involved a joint endeavor from ICOMOS Ireland and DoCoMoMo Ireland members, following a request from ICOMOS/ISC 2Oth Century, for each European National Committee to nominate five 20th Century concrete structures from their countries which would be considered for inclusion in a wider ’20 from the 20th Century’ survey project being carried out. The presentations are available to watch on the ICOMOS Ireland Facebook page.



The ICOMOS Ireland EYCH2018 Study Tour of the Titanic Quarter, Belfast, took place on July 7th and was a very successful outing. Further information on the event can be found here
