Irish Period Houses - The Definitive Reference Manual

Dublin Civic Trust's flagship publication Irish Period Houses - A Conservation Guidance Manual is the must-have reference tool for building conservation in Ireland.

Newly rewritten and published for 2016 by the original author, chartered conservation surveyor Frank Keohane, Irish Period Houses provides invaluable information for the homeowner and building professional into the design of traditional houses, their construction materials and decorative elements, and expert guidance on how they can be repaired and enhanced with best conservation practice. It is the definitive reference guide for custodians of most period buildings in Ireland and for anyone considering taking on a building conservation project.
