The thirteenth annual lecture in the Gilbert Lecture Series, Brendan Grimes', 'Commodious Temples: Roman Catholic church building in nineteenth-century Dublin' was delivered on 21 January 2010, at Dublin City Library & Archive, Pearse Street, and chaired by the Lord Mayor, Councillor Emer Costello.
