PRII Family Day Out! Ardnacrusha Experience

PRII are planning a family fun day out this summer for members, with the help of ESB and Iarnród Éireann.

Start Date 21 July 2018
Venue ESB Ardnacrusha Experience, Shannon
Fees PRII Members €0 - PRII Members Only

The plan is, on Saturday 21 July, to travel - in our very own train carriage - kindly provided by Iarnród Éireann, to the ESB Ardnacrusha Experience in Shannon, kindly organised by ESB.
 We leave Saturday morning, not too early and are back in the evening, not too late.

 Members from outside Dublin are also welcome to join us at Ardnacrusha on the day.

 Once inside the massive station, tour guides and animations tell the story and impact of this iconic project. PRII visitors will be given access to the very heart of the station with unique views of the huge turbine hall and a visit to the original control room. And outdoors there are the largest canal locks in Ireland and food, music and face-painting!


And the PRII has a connection (pun intended!). It was ESB PR man, Ned Lawler, the first President of the PRII, who led the public tours of Ardnacrusha in 1928, with most travelling by train, welcoming over 85,000 visitors in the first nine months!

Last year, the ESB revived this tradition with the opening of the Ardnacrusha Experience to celebrate the company’s 90 years.

Now we would like to honour that forefather of Irish public relations and the PRII and have a fun day out at the same time.
