Pat Liddy

Pat Liddy is a well-known figure in Dublin having been a prolific tour-guide, artist, article writer and various other roles connected to Dublin over the last 30 years.

He will lead a tour of Dublin City Centre on September 20th at 2pm (further details will be posted), aimed at people working around our research projects in Ireland. In particular, he will give us a discussion of how tenement dublin built up, the local history of some of the schools and hospitals in Dublin and many other features that will be of interest to people working on topics such as the determinants of health in Ireland, education participation and so on. The idea in putting this together is that researchers working on these topics will benefit from actually seeing the contexts of how Dublin evolved and getting a more spatial and historical sense of the topics they are studying. It is a personal initiative rather than official one.

Spaces are limited so let me know if you would like to come along.
