New Chair Appointed to the Irish Georgian Society, London Chapter
March 23, 2016
Ashleigh Murray has been appointed as Chair to the London Chapter of the Irish Georgian Society. The Society was established in 1958 by the Hon. Desmond Guinness and Mariga Guinness’ vision to conserve, protect and foster interest and respect for Ireland’s architectural heritage. The London Chapter was established in 1971 by Kevin O’Shea.
Ashleigh is a Historic Building Advisor who joined Donald Insall Associates in 2013 and provides historic buildings advice to a broad range of clients. She previously worked as a Business Officer in English Heritage’s Planning Department and has a specialism in Georgian architecture, gained through her Masters in Historic Building Conservation and also her Masters in Decorative Arts and the Historic Interior.
John Redmill, Chairman of the London Chapter for the past 23 years, said: “Under her, the future of the London Chapter is bright and assured. I had met Nick Thompson (the London Chairman from 1982 to 1990) when he joined the office of Donald Insall in 1974 so, interestingly, this leading firm of conservation architects has provided the Chapter’s Chairperson for 33 years of its 42 years of existence.”
