IMA Membership Events

Old Drogheda Society

Dear Members,


We have two events taking place this month which I hope may be of interest to you and your colleagues and for which I have outlined some information below. Please note that the forum reached full capacity last year so I would advise making an early booking to avoid any disappointment.

As always, if you have any questions or feedback for the IMA, don’t hesitate in getting in touch with me.


Best wishes,

(Gina O'Kelly | Irish Museums Association)
