Behind the façades of Georgian Dublin with John Gibney

When we speak of ‘Georgian Dublin’, the term usually refers to the public buildings and residences of the ruling elite. But what about everyone else who lived in the city, the lives they led and the worlds they moved in? This lecture will explore a city that lay behind the otherwise elegant facades of Georgian Dublin, to examine the cultural life, and the social, religious and political tensions, that defined Dublin from the Williamite War to the eve of the Great Famine.

John Gibney is Assistant Editor with the Royal Irish Academy’s Documents on Irish Foreign Policy series and is the author of Dublin: a new illustrated history (2017).
