Day Place Building Conservation Project Seminar

Day Place Building Conservation Project Seminar   

Day Place, Tralee, County Kerry, is a fine terrace of Georgian townhouses built by and named after Justice Robert Day (1746-1841).  The townhouses, the first designed terrace in the town, were originally home to the gentry and merchant class and were accompanied by a range of mews fronting on to Friars Lane [Friary Lane].

Day Place has undergone much change over the nineteenth and twentieth centuries and a number of the houses are now in commercial or office use.  The piecemeal replacement of original fabric has also impacted on the character of the terrace as an architectural setpiece in Tralee.

The Day Place Building Conservation Project Seminar, a free event, will address the architectural and historical significance of Day Place.  Discussions and workshops will provide an opportunity to learn about the building materials that contribute to the special character of Day Place, their conservation and repair, and the subsurface secrets that have been uncovered through archaeological excavation.  The seminar will also include practical demonstrations of joinery and lime repair.

The Day Place Building Conservation Project Seminar will take place from 10am on Tuesday 18th June at Kerry County Library, Moyderwell, Tralee, County Kerry.  All are welcome.
