As part of the Dublin Festival of History 2018 the Wood Quay Venue in the Civic Offices will host a half day seminar ‘The Last Century: Dublin City and suburbs in the 20th century’ on the buildings features in More Than Concrete Blocks Vol.2, 1940- 1972 (for publication December 2018 with Four Courts Press).  This seminar will focus on the history of Dublin’s architecture from 1940 to 1973 including the largely overlooked 1940s and 1950s.
