If Maps Could Speak

The County Library, Tallaght presents a Talk by Richard Kirwan

If Maps Could Speak

At the County Library on Thursday 24th March at 7:00 p.m.

Richard is former Director of Ordnance Survey Ireland and author of If Maps Could Speak, an engaging combination of memoir, history and stories about people and places. Richard will talk about the behind the scenes work of the early map-makers with accounts of thie inventions, adventures, endurance and heroism in pre-Famine Ireland. Their struggles and achievements are counterpointed by the successful efforts of the efforts of the author and the OS staff to bring the mapping of Ireland up to date using photographic and computer technology in the final decades of the twentieth century.

This event is free and all are welcome.
