Waterways Ireland Archive Exhibition in Mullingar: Celebrating 200 Years of the Royal Canal

A forthcoming exhibition in Mullingar Library will celebrate 200 years of the Royal Canal through images and drawings from the Waterways Ireland Archive.

Featuring a selection of images from the Archive and from the Ruth Delany and the Ian Bath Collections they reveal the fascinating history of the canal over the past 200 years. The photographs on display are a snapshot of the long history of the canal but they are also testament to the work and efforts of individuals like Ruth Delany and Ian Bath to personally document its deterioration from the 1970's onwards and to highlight an awareness of the canal during the years of lobbying for support for its restoration.

The exhibition will be on display in Mullingar Library from the 27th November to the 8th December during Library opening hours.

Monday               10:00am – 17:30pm

Tuesday               10:00am – 20:00pm

Wednesday        11:00am – 17:30pm
