If Maps Could Speak, Ordnance Survey Past & Present by Richard Kirwan

The first of the lecture series will take place in the Town Hall on Wednesday September 21 at 8.00pm.

Richard Kirwan is a Waterford native.  Having graduated from UCC with a degree in Civil Engineering, he spent many years working with Ordnance Survey Ireland. He had a childhood fascination with maps and his native city. In his book "If Maps Could Speak" which was published in 2010, he engages his combination of memoir, history and stories about  people and places during the history of Ordnance Survey in Ireland.
Richard is responsible for the modernisation and re- mapping of Ordnance Survey of the entire Country and in his talk he will take the audience behind the scenes and into the minds and early works of the map makers.
