Wood Quay Venu

The Lime Slam is an open forum for BLFI members to present on projects, and research topics and to share knowledge of the opportunities and challenges associated with the use of lime. This is a great opportunity for members to catch up on what has been a busy past year, so if you have a project in mind that you are keen to share we would love to hear from you. Presentations should be between 10-30 minutes long.

This is a call for members interested in presenting, and for all other members to put the date in their diaries.

This year the event will be held at the Woodquay Venue, Dublin where the recently conserved Medieval City wall will form a suitable backdrop for our speakers.

The closing date for proposals is Wednesday, 1st of February 2023.

If you wish to submit a presentation please send an email to
