Big Mountain Productions (who produced ‘Genealogy Roadshow’ and ‘The Tenements’) have been commissioned to produce a four-part television series called ‘The Big House‘ for TV3.
A living history experiment based in Strokestown House, Co. Roscommon, the series will also feature testimonials from former staff who worked in Big Houses all around Ireland. Unfortunately, as we know, many of these men and women have passed on but we are still hopeful that we will be able to find a few who could chat about what daily life was like. We are particularly interested in capturing the memories of any staff who may have worked in any of the Big Houses around Co. Wicklow e.g. Powerscourt House, Russborough House, Killruddery House etc.
If anyone is interested, please contact Eimear Healy on (087) 4162248.
