VIDEO, Audio and aerial images will make up the eagerly awaited week long free exhibition on the flooding of the Lee Valley and the building of the two dams that formed the Lee Hydroelectic Scheme.
The exhibition takes place in Coachford from Monday July 14th to the 20th in the Community House, Main Street, Coachford.
This is a fabulous opportunity for people to witness how this mammoth task of building the dams took place and the huge implications it had on the people and environment in the Lee Valley area.
The organisers have put in a lot of work into the event over the last six months and have secured never seen before images from the ESB and Cork County Council as well as rare film footage taken at the time.
