Great Irish Journeys

About the Show

Broadcaster and journalist Martha Kearney follows in the footsteps of 19th century Irish artist and geologist, George Victor Du Noyer, in a four-part series exploring the places Du Noyer visited and captured so wonderfully in sketch and paint. Take a comprehensive walk through the island to unlock the story of Ireland's hidden landscapes and Du Noyer's unique record of how the country looked during the early 19th century – a period of huge change. The programmes also reveal the intrinsic relationship between the people and the land (something that Du Noyer was the first to document) and charts the changes facing modern Ireland today.
