Expert Workshop at the Royal Irish Academy : Shedding Light on ESB’s Archives

On Friday 13th October, our Senior Archivist Deirdre McParland was privileged to be invited as a guest speaker at the Expert Workshops series of the Irish Family History Centre held in the beautiful surroundings of the Royal Irish Academy, Dawson Street.

Deirdre explored the research resources now available on and their use as a historical source, documenting the transformative industrial and social developments of the nation. The 45 minute podcast is now available to listen at

Thank you to Fiona Fitzsimons, curator of the Expert workshops.
