   Building Ireland - Educational Material

Building Ireland was a TV series broadcast on RTÉ that explored how Ireland's great building and engineering achievements came to be, and their impact on the development of Irish towns and cities.

The makers of the series, Esras Films, have made 18 short video clips from the programmes available to Scoilnet and subject editors have developed curriculum-focused lessons around the clips.
