Sorcha O’Brien will talk about her new book Powering the Nation, the visual story, not just of the Shannon Hydroelectric Scheme, but of Ireland’s introduction to electricity in the early days of the Irish Free State. The talk will showcase a range of visual materials, from paintings and prints to industrial and tourist photographs, technical drawings to cigarette cards.
