Tim Robinson - The Man and the Archive on 'Arts Tonight', RTÉ Radio 1

Tim Robinson
Late 2014 brought the exciting news that the exceptional writer and cartographer, Tim Robinson, would deposit his archive with the Hardiman Library, NUI Galway. Encapsulating a lifetime of work committed to documenting the Irish landscape and in particular the regions of Connemara and the Burren and also the Aran Islands, the Tim Robinson archive is an incredible insight and record of how the landscape has been studied, mapped and documented and now this archive will be catalogued and made accessible for research at the Hardiman Library.

To celebrate this archive, a new book entitled Connemara and Elsewhere, edited by Prof. Jane Conroy, was published by the Royal Irish Academy in association with NUI Galway. Also, Vincent Woods, host of RTE Radio's Arts Tonight series, visited the Hardiman Library to view and explore the archive as well as visit and interview Tim Robinson himself at his home in Roundstone, Co. Galway.

The Interpreting Landscape exhibition opening up the Tim Robinson archive continues throughout January at the Hardiman Building.
