'Publication of Eccles Street Commemorative Book' image

A commemorative book was published in 2011 by Roisin Hanley and Sister Margherita Rock RSM to celebrate the conservation work that has been carried out by the Mater Misericordiae University Hospital on the restoration and conservation of Eccles Street in Dublin. The book was officially launched by President Mary McAleese at the official opening of its 150th anniversary on the 21st of January 2011. Since the 1990's Roisin has worked on the conservation and restoration of 29 of the houses on Eccles Street, substantially converting them from residential homes to medical and educational use.
