‘Building Ireland’ return to RTE, September 30
‘Building Ireland’ returns to explore and explain how Ireland’s great building and engineering achievements came to be, and their impact on the development of our towns and cities. In the company of an enthusiastic team of experts, the series marries local heritage with construction technology and engineering. Architecture, geography and engineering are the disciplines brought to bear; each programme focuses on a prime example of Ireland’s built heritage and recounts the fascinating story of its construction.
The new series begins Friday 30 September 2016 at 8.30pm on RTÉ One. The series covers Spike Island in the first episode, followed by further episodes on Kilkenny Castle, Ardnacrusha, Kerry Tourism, Dublin’s Distillaries and the Corrib Canal.
