Click on image below

"The Shannon Scheme" - silent film from 1928 showing earth being tipped into a ditch and shots of a machine with shovels attached digging earth out of a canal. In August 1925 one of the most important under-takings for the economic and social life of the country was begun when the first sod was cut at Ardnacrusha, Co. Clare, for the construction of the Shannon Hydro-Electric Scheme.
