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. Using a combination of cutting-edge artificial intelligence technology and historical research, these pictures have been meticulously colourised with breathtaking attention to detail and authenticity. Old Ireland in Colour revitalises scenes we thought we knew, and brings our past back to life before our eyes.
In Old Ireland in Colour 2, the much-anticipated sequel, John Breslin and Sarah-Anne Buckley have delved even deeper into Ireland’s historical archives. With over 150 superb images, and all thirty-two counties represented, the book is another perfect encapsulation of life in Ireland throughout the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
