Only down the road from the Iveagh Markets, Blackpitts was historically an area associated with industry in Dublin, due to the water supply serving the area. This blog post looks at the area in bit more detail.
I am currently at the Heritage week talk in Waterville, Co. Kerry about the cable station in Waterville given by Dorothy and Amy Rudd.
I have generally been disappointed by HW talks this year but this mother and daughter combination gave an excellent presentation.
There is a Facebook page setup for updates on the ongoing research into this aspect of Ireland’s industrial heritage.
