This book contains the text and illustrations of ten papers delivered at a conference held in the Irish Architectural Archive in January 2005 to mark the retirement of Professor McCarthy. The conference was sponsored by the Archive, the Irish Georgian Society and the Irish Association of Art Historians and was co-ordinated by Karina O'Neill.

The authors of the papers have all been associated with Professor McCarthy at University College Dublin or at the University of Toronto or in studies of the architectural history of Ireland.

Michael McCarthy, emeritus professor of the School of Art History, UCD, is the author of The Origins of the Gothic Revival (1997) and Classical and Gothic (2005). Karina O'Neill is the Communications and Competitions Officer of the Royal Institute of Architects of Ireland and has been editorial assistant for previous books in the UCD Studies in the History of Art series.
