The Sir John T. Gilbert Commemorative Lecture, 1999

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.

This, the second annual lecture in the series, was delivered in the Oak Room of the Mansion House on 22nd January 1999, and chaired by the Right Honourable the Lord Mayor of Dublin, Councillor Senator Joe Doyle. Alan Fletcher's 'What a performance!' was accompanied by four singers from the Christ Church choir.
