Grangegorman Histories will provide a series of opportunities to contribute to the important work of uncovering, cataloguing and memorialising the 200-year history of this site and the surrounding area. It aims to raise awareness of the multi-faceted histories of this area through an ambitious, wide-ranging and challenging programme that is always respectful and recognises the sometimes-distressing nature of personal stories. The Royal Irish Academy and the Grangegorman Development Agency will lead this programme of research and shared discovery.
