The Bulletins of The Irish Georgian Society.

While early issues focused on the preservation work of the Society, from the 1960s the Bulletin included essays by pioneers of art, architecture and decorative arts scholarship in Ireland, including Ann Crookshank, C.P. Curran, Ada Longfield, Rolf Loeber, Edward McParland and Alistair Rowan. The appointment of an academic editor in 1995 ultimately paved the way for Irish Architectural & Decorative Studies.
