Marconi Heritage Weekend

Location: Clifden, Co. Galway,
Date: 12th-14th October 2012

The Italian inventor and entrepreneur who built his transatlantic wireless telegraphy station in Derrigimlagh will be celebrated over the course of this weekend.

The site of the old Marconi station has been extensively researched and mapped recently and a series of talks, guided walks and exhibitions will give us an insight into how groundbreaking and vitally important Marconi and his stations were in global communications.
