The excellent Industrial Ireland: An Archaeology has just been reprinted in a soft back version and to celebrate the good folks at The Collins Press have given me a copy to give away to one lucky reader (see below).
Still the definite publication on Ireland’s recent industrial past, the book investigates a huge range of sites, including mills, canals, railways, ports and distilleries (amongst others). These are examined in detail and the technologies behind them discussed, with consideration given to important surviving sites.
The book is written by Dr. Colin Rynne in an accessible style and is beautifully illustrated with numerous colour photos, maps and diagrams. A publication you can dip in and out of as you please, it remains an indispensable accompaniment to anyone interested in Ireland’s rich industrial heritage.
Competition: I have one copy of the excellent Industrial Ireland: An Archaeology to give away. To enter just leave a comment below (all comments have to be moderated so it might take and hour or two for them to appear). I’ll then pick a winner out of a hat (closing date from entries is 6 pm on Saturday 19th of September, the winner will be notified on Sunday the 20th of September).
