1943 Vernacular Buildings of Lusk

In 1943, UCD architectural students carried out a major survey of vernacular buildings in Lusk in conjunction with the Royal Irish
Academy. This survey was a time capsule for the widespread thatched vernacular buildings in Lusk, most of which no longer exist. The National Museum of Ireland is the custodian of these drawings and illustrations of this social and architectural history.

The National Museum has agreed to make high resolution images of the exhibits available for the purposes of an exhibition in Lusk
Community Cultural Centre, which is scheduled for completion in June 2022. We believe that this exhibition will be of local, regional
and national significance in terms of architectural social history and will have broad appeal, especially as it will be exhibited in a
very important vernacular building that is currently being restored and repurposed as a Cultural Centre for Lusk.

Please note that the details of events listed above are provided by the relevant Local Authorities.
