The 28th ICM committee is delighted to announce that we will be offering delegates a choice of excursions. These are scheduled for the morning of July 3rd.
Glendalough, Co. Wicklow, is one of the most impressive early Irish ecclesiastical sites. Situated in a glaciated valley it offers the visitor a chance to explore a variety of medieval buildings within a beautiful setting. It is situated only an hour from Dublin. The ICM will arrange for a bus to collect delegates and bring them to and from the site, as well as providing a guided tour. More details to follow.
Built in the early eighteenth century, Marsh’s is Dublin’s oldest public library. It is located near the centre of the city, just behind St Patrick’s Cathedral. Remarkably, the building continues to be used for its original purpose. Very much a product of the Enlightenment, the library contains a unique collection of manuscripts and early printed books. The ICM is delighted to offer delegates the chance to view the highlights of the manuscript collection, including a recently discovered cache of fragments found within bindings and endpapers.
