Lecture: The Martello Towers of Dublin

Lecture: The Martello Towers of Dublin

#MartelloLecture-"The Martello Towers of Dublin" is the opening lecture of this year's Howth Peninsula Heritage Society winter series, which takes place next Tuesday (22 January)

Tim Carey, Heritage Officer of Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council (DLRCoCo), will present his talk on the fascinating history of the maritime coastal defence features which dot along Dublin Bay.

Carey is one of four co-authors who contributed to the excellent publication 'The Martello Towers of Dublin' which was launched last year by the French Ambassador to Ireland in Dun Laoghaire Town Hall.

The lecture takes place at 8.00 p.m. in the Howth Angling Centre, at the harbour's West Pier which is a few minutes-walk from the DART station. All are welcome and a non-society member admission fee of €4 is payable at the door.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open. is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
