Building Ireland Series 1

Building Ireland is a six part documentary series produced by Esras for RTE, which examines the heritage of 19th architecture, engineering and social geography. I co-presented the series with Dr Susan Hegarty and Tim Joyce. Season 1 looked at the West Cork railway line, the Banking Halls of Dame Street, the Quay in Waterford city, Saint John’s Cathedral in Limerick, the Drogheda viaduct and the linen industry in Westport. Building Ireland was directed by Brian Gray and produced by Peter Kelly and part funded by the BAI. (2014)
