Friday Feature Week 20 – Old Ireland in Colour by John Breslin & Dr Sarah-Anne Buckley

Friday, October 30th, 2020

This week’s  Friday Feature is ‘Old Ireland in Colour‘ by John Breslin & Dr Sarah-Anne Buckley.
 
We are very impressed by the quality of ‘Old Ireland in Colour‘, just published by Irish Academic Press at €24.95 – an ideal Christmas gift book.
 

Old Ireland in Colour celebrates the rich history of Ireland and the Irish through the colour restoration of stunning images of all walks of Irish life, and the Irish abroad, throughout the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. From the chaos of the Civil War to the simple beauty of the islands, each image has been exquisitely transformed and every page is bursting with life.

Using a combination of cutting-edge artificial intelligence technology and his own historical research, John Breslin has meticulously colourised these pictures with breathtaking attention to detail and authenticity. With over 170 photographs from all four provinces, and accompanied by fascinating captions by historian Sarah-Anne Buckley, Old Ireland in Colour revitalises scenes we thought we knew, and brings our past back to life before our eyes.
