Lord Mayor's Certificate in Local Studies: booking open

The Lord Mayor’s Certificate in Local Studies will be taught at Dublin City Library & Archive, 138-144 Pearse Street, Dublin 2.

Classes will be held from 5:30pm to 8pm on Tuesday evenings from September 2017 until April 2018, and Dr. Seamas O Maitiu will be the course tutor.

Places are allocated on a first-come first-served basis and the maximum number of participants is sixteen. (Last year’s course was sold out.)
