Welcome to the Pillar Room
‘By hiring the Pillar Room you support a long tradition of philanthropy.’
Dr. Bartholomew Mosse, Founder and First Master of the First Dublin Lying-in Hospital (now known as the Rotunda), was greatly admired for his charitable enterprise. From 1750 onwards, he organised concerts by eminent contemporary European musicians and recitals by prominent writers and popular public figures, to raise funds for the construction of his proposed new Maternity Hospital, which finally opened on 8th December, 1757.
Following his death at the age of 47, Dr. Mosse’s successors developed a variety of entertainment complexes on the site. The ‘Round Room’ or ‘Rotunda’ opened as a fundraising venue in 1767 and it proved so successful that an enlarged entertainment complex including the ‘Supper Room’ and the ‘Pillar Room’ was opened in 1787.
Progressing on from Dr. Mosse’s inspiring legacy, The Rotunda Foundation continues fundraising ventures in aid of the Rotunda Hospital, to raise money for research, better facilities and services and additional vital and life-saving equipment, particularly where the State is unable to meet such costs.
