Since its foundation in 2004, the Centre for the Study of Historic Irish Houses & Estates (CSHIHE) has attracted a remarkable level of notice in the press and on radio and television.
In 2005, for example, the internationally renowned Arts journal Apollo described the CSHIHE as ‘an academic endeavour that has no parallel in England’ and generously praised its educational efforts, particularly the outstanding success of its annual conferences.
The Annual Historic Houses of Ireland Conference features in the local and national press each year, as do seminars and lectures hosted by the CSHIHE.
The CSHIHE Director, Professor Terence Dooley, regularly features as an expert on a number of radio and television programmes broadcast in Ireland, Britain and worldwide, including RTÉ’s Nationwide programme. Indeed, Professor Dooley’s work on behalf of Golf Environment Europe meant that the CSHIHE featured very prominently in the 2006 Ryder Cup Environment Guide and so received international exposure.
