More than 22 years have passed since the Chester Beatty moved from Shrewsbury Road to Dublin Castle. Former OPW Assistant Principal Architect, Angela Rolfe, worked on several projects in Dublin Castle between 1981-2017, including the restoration and extension to the historic Clock Tower Building for the Chester Beatty.

Angela will share background context of the development and restoration process for this unique project. Join her for a behind-the-scenes tour of the non-public rooms and facilities in the restored former Clock Tower Building.
