#lectures - As part of the Bullock Bicentenary, another lecture in the series about the small south Dublin Bay harbour is to be held next week in the Dalkey Castle and Heritage Centre.
Organiser of the lectures, Bullock Harbour Preservation Association (BHPA) in conjunction with the Dublin Port Company are continuing the talks on the history and heritage of Bullock given by excellent speakers from the Port Company and elsewhere.
The lectures will take place at 8pm each evening in Dalkey Castle & Heritage Centre and all are welcome and there is no longer any need to pre-book places.
The third lecture held so far last month, was presented by Elizabeth Shotton and according to the BHPA attracted the largest audience yet with almost 200 in attendance. Her presentation of the Lidar survey of the stonework with amazing 3D graphics overlaid on historic paintings and modern photos was outstanding.
Forthcoming next two lectures are:
Tuesday 12 February 8pm "Bullock Harbour into the Future - Monitoring and Repairs" presented by Eamon McElroy, Port Engineer, Dublin Port Company
Tuesday 12 March 8pm "The Port across the Bay - evolution from the early 19th century to 2040" **presented by Eamonn O'Reilly, Chief Executive Officer, Dublin Port Company **
** Please note the change of speaker and topic for the March lecture as Eamonn O'Reilly was unable to deliver BHPA's opening lecture in November, as Lar Joye spoke about the Port Archives in his place.
