IABA Forge-In April 8th 2017
The Irish Artist Blacksmith Association (IABA) held their second Forge-In on the 8th of April, 2017. ACP had the chance to attend and record some of the activities. The day was hosted by Brendan St. John at his workshop in Drangan, Co. Tipperary. The forge-in was attended by members of IABA from all over the country. A forge-in is a gathering of blacksmiths and interested people alike with the intention of sharing skills and knowledge. One of the main incentives for the event is to get more young people interested in this ancient craft which has a long and established history in Ireland.

Graveyards & Historic Ironwork
Across our towns, cities, rural countryside, in historic houses, farms and graveyards, there is a vast undocumented, and probably little understood part of our heritage rusting away. With proper conservation this ironwork can be made viable for future generations to enjoy and appreciate. David Humphreys, director of Architectural Conservation Professionals talks on the importance of Historic Ironwork in our Graveyards at a presentation on the 24th of July 2013 at Ruan Community Centre, Co. Clare. With thanks to Rísteard Ua Cróinín, ACO, Clare Co. Council, Paul Conway & Joe Saunders, Clare Heritage Forum.
