Successful Historic Houses & Gardens Seminar

The seminar took place on Thursday 22 October in the magnificent surroundings of Lismore Castle. The Pugin room was packed to capacity with an enthusiastic audience.

The first speaker on the programme was museum curator William Fraher who spoke on the Country Houses of West Waterford.

Other speakers included Lord Waterford who spoke about his home, Curraghmore, Willie Cuming spoke on the buildings and landscapes of Ireland survey. Colm Murray from the Heritage Council and Louise Harrington gave a though provoking presentation on the lack of research on those who worked on the large estates as servants, gardeners and tenants. Their history has often been ignored in studies of the big house in Ireland.

Kristen Jameson spoke about the new Co. Waterford Trail which is to be launched next year.

Well done to Bernadette Guest, County Heritage Officer and Rose Ryal, Conservation Officer, Waterford Co. Council for an excellent seminar.
