This is a group for anyone interested in the history of Dublin city and county. Come along if you want to share stories about the people and places - or if you want to learn more about this fine city! The plan is to schedule a wide variety of events related to Dublin history, such as the Viking city, Georgian Dublin, Dublin Tenements, The Liberties, 1916, Famous Parks, Dublin Writers, Landmarks etc. With a thousand years of history at our fingertips, the list is endless!
Code of Conduct: The group is intentionally relaxed, informal and friendly. We focus on having a smaller group of active members, so periodically remove members who are inactive. There is no membership fee to be in this group, though we send the hat around twice a year, when the Meetup website fee is due.
As a minimum, the following code of conduct is expected of all members:
If you say you'll attend.. then attend! No shows/last minute drop outs ruin the fun for everyone.
No using the group for commercial enterprise, the group is deliberately non-profit
No abuse of the organisers/other members
Any members in breach of this code will be removed from the group.
Health & Safety: Events are organised with H&S in mind (max numbers, no unsafe venues/destinations etc.), however, each member attends events at their own risk.
A bit of a specialised subject but may be of interest to some particularly given the years covered.
The next seminar will take place on Wednesday October 28th with a discussion led by Dr Michael Kennedy, Executive Editor of the Documents on Irish Foreign Policy Project.
The seminar will mark the publication of the twelfth volume relating to the period[masked].
The seminar will take place at 4.00pm and will be conducted online via zoom.

This week's talk will be open to the floor!
Given the season, it's a chance to share the creepy stories of places and people, in Dublin and elsewhere, to find all the haunted parts of this city and country.
Come armed with your tales, or it'll be a very short meetup! We may all end up sleeping with the lights on 😄.
As usual, please make sure your email settings allow you to receive organiser emails, so you get the login details on Wednesday.
