This programme may be subject to variation.

Aims: The conference aims to provide a forum for the public, professionals and academics to come to a better understanding of the contemporary domestic architecture, its influences, form and function, its designers and builders as well as exploring changes in town fortifications necessitated by the introduction of heavy artillery. As a town with an incredibly rich medieval and early modern infrastructure, Kilmallock provides the perfect backdrop to look at this important transitional period between the medieval and the modern world.
