Since its establishment, the CSHIHE has collaborated closely with a number of partners in Ireland, the United Kingdom and further afield. These have included Maynooth University Library, the Office of Public Works, OPW-MU Archive and Research Centre, Irish Georgian Society, Irish Heritage Trust, Historic Houses Association of Ireland, Department of Aerts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, and numerous privately owned country houses. Beyond Ireland, the Centre has collaborated closely with the Yorkshire Country House Partnership, as well as the Attingham Trust, Historic Houses (UK), the National Trust, Thames Valley Partnership, the Institute for the Study of Welsh Landed Estates (Bangor University), the Centre for Scotland's Land Futures, the Paul Mellon Centre, and Castle Howard; as well as Europa Nostra and the European Historic Houses Association. These international partners have joined the Centre in hosting its annual conferences, as well as contributing to seminars, publications, and exhibitions, and building up valuable networks of fellow academics and professionals.
The exhibitions, curated by a number of individuals, have been held in various locations throughout Ireland including Maynooth University Library, the Russell Library in St Patrick’s College, Dublin Castle, Castletown House, Airfield House, Westport House, Derrynane, and Queens University Belfast. The CSHIHE is delighted now to be able to provide virtual versions of these exhibitions:

1916 and the Irish Country House Rebellion and War
The Morpeth Roll
As ever we are profoundly grateful to our colleagues and partners for their continued support, interest in, and engagement with the Centre.
