The 15th Annual Sir John T. Gilbert Commemorative Lecture, 2012

The Gilbert Lecture Series was inaugurated in 1998, the year which marked the centenary of the death of Sir John T. Gilbert. The aim of the series is to celebrate the life and work of Gilbert, and the history of Dublin, the city whose past he wished to uncover and bring before a wider public.

The fifteenth annual lecture in the Gilbert Lecture Series, 'Sir John T. Gilbert (1829-1898): Life, Works and Context' by Brendan Twomey, was held at Dublin City Library and Archive, Pearse Street on the 23rd January 2012. Brendan Twomey has published many books on the history of Dublin including 'Dublin in 1707: A year in the life of the city' (2009) and 'Smithfield and the Parish of St Paul, Dublin 1698-1750' (2005).
