The legacy of Magee’s Conservation

Historic buildings are vital part of the country’s heritage and are the subject of increasing public and private interest. The importance of these buildings is widely recognized. Many of them have been declared National Monuments or have been listed on the European Union’s cultural heritage register. This makes them worthy of preservation and protection.

Many historic buildings have been lost over the years, but there are still many that remain, and are protected by Magee Conservation & Restoration. So, if you’re interested in preserving your own country’s history, this article is for you.

Magee’s latest project, “The Liberties” is a neighborhood in Dublin city centre, the Irish capital. It is located at the heart of the city centre. The area has a vibrant and diverse cultural life. It includes some of Dublin’s most prominent buildings, such as the General Post Office, which is now home to the Irish Centre for Human Rights.

History of The Liberties 

This is a large and busy part of Dublin city, and has a long history of fighting for the rights of the Irish people. It was founded by James I in the 17th Century, and the land was given to his Protestant friends as a reward for their loyalty. The name came from the English word “Liberty” which meant freedom. In the 19th century the area was made up of tenements and slums, but the Irish writer Oliver St. John Gogarty wrote that it was full of life and people.

1. In the early 17th century, the city of Dublin was split into two distinct parts: the north, which was Protestant, and the south, which was Catholic.             There were many conflicts between the two sides. The most famous of these was the Irish Civil War. The conflict lasted from 1642 to 1653

2. On February 11, 1641, a series of riots broke out between the Catholics and Protestants, which led to the Siege of Drogheda, the Battle of Kilrush and the Battle of New Ross. In the following months, the Parliament of Ireland, a Protestant body, raised an army to invade Ireland. By the time the army reached Dublin, the Catholics had repelled them. The battles in the 1640s led to the establishment of the Irish Republic in the following years, which lasted until the Act of Union of 1800

3. This united the two countries of Ireland, which is why the area now known as The Liberties is so called.

Recently, the Iveagh trust estate ,Bull ally Situated in the liberties is a project undertaken by Magee Conservation. Magee Conservation and Restoration is the leading specialist in building restoration, conservation and preventative maintenance of Dublin’s most iconic buildings, including protected structures.
