Castletown House: A Place in History
- This episode of the E-Learning Curve Blog's Other Podcast is from my personal audio archive; I re-discovered it while researching something else, but I thought I might bring it to you because it aptly demonstrates the effectiveness of using wildtrack in an audio production, and the skill of an unusual subject matter in bringing a topic to life.
Castletown House in Celbridge, County Kildare is Ireland's earliest, largest, and some would say finest Palladian country house. It was built between 1722 and 1729 for William Conolly, Speaker of the Irish House of Commons and the wealthiest commoner in Ireland. In 1998 I had the opportunity to meet with Gillian Byrne, who was curator of Castletown House at the time, and she was kind enough to give me a personal tour of the house, and tell me about its history.
