The 1916 Rising was the most devastating conflict in Ireland’s history, and it would be several years before Dublin would recover from the damage caused.

Robin Mandal has an extensive knowledge of the steps that were taken to repair the city and how the following years would lead to the birth of Independent Ireland.

Now he is going to share that knowledge with the public. Mandal will give a lecture entitled “Rebuilding Dublin After 1916” at the RDS, at which all are welcome.

Robin Mandal is the outgoing Presidents of the Royal Institute of Architects of Ireland. For the past two years, this organisation has been heavily involved in the planning and construction of a chapel in the St. Paul’s cemetary area of Glasnevin Cemetary to commemorate the 232 people buried there who died in the Rising.

The lecture will take place on Wednesday 9 March from 6.30pm to 8.30pm at the RDS Library, Merrion Road, Ballsbridge. Admission to the event is free, but booking is required via the website.
