Policing Georgian Dublin: St Thomas’ Watch

Printer-friendly version

Monday 9 October at 1.10pm in the Central Library, ILAC Centre.

In Paul Maher's talk, Georgian Dublin is exposed through the lens of the watch diaries of the parish of St Thomas. Select Vestry meetings oversaw the parish administration in Dublin’s Sackville Street area and hired and fired ‘impertinent’ watchmen. Learn about policing Dublin, protecting James Gandon and tour through the ‘Old Rope Walk’ and ‘Worlds End Lane’. Admission is free. Booking is required.

This event is part of Dublin Festival of History Programme
