Innovation Dublin is a week-long festival of events highlighting and promoting innovation in the city.
It’s an opportunity for Dubliners – whether they’re entrepreneurs, students, researchers, artists or large corporations – to promote and celebrate their new ideas and initiatives. South Dublin County Council is taking part and there are loads of events taking place across the county during the week which runs from October 14th – 20th.
From a local studies perspective, we’ll be launching our new map website, Connecting to the Past: Mapping South Dublin County in Time, which we’re very excited about! The site will make available online a selection of historic maps covering the South Dublin County area, as well as current Ordnance Survey street maps and orthophotography. It will be online through http://www.southdublinlibraries.ie from next week.
We will also have a digital exhibition on the history of innovation in South Dublin County – from milking machines to the Luas – more details to follow.
