About this event

Synopsis of “Old Ireland in Colour” by John Breslin & Dr. Sarah-Anne Buckley

Irish ancestors? Or just interested? The images in this presentation are shown in their native black and white and in colour, to bring out the stories behind the pictures; the people, the places and the objects that have the stories to tell. The art of colourising these images is another skill, using the colour to realise all the detail in the original and to do so faithfully to the eras represented by the images. Stories that will enlighten, inform and entertain. And, who knows, we might just get a glimpse of an ancestral locality!

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.
