Thu28Mar20198:00 pmMidlands Park Hotel, Portlaoise
In 1908 in Maryborough/Portlaoise, Ireland, Frank & Louis Aldritt, William Rogers and John Conroy commenced work on a Bleriot-style Flying Machine - the First Plane to be built and flown in what became the Republic of Ireland. This plane, safely stored throughout the turbulent years of the 1900s, including two World Wars, the Irish War of Independence and the Irish Civil War, eventually disappeared and was lost to the town for over 40 years until Joe Rogers, in tribute to his father, William, one of the original craftsmen, began his search to locate the record-breaking machine.
Teddy Fennelly and Alan Phelan will be giving a talk on the Portlaoise Plane (Aldritts' Monoplane) at the Midlands park Hotel on Thursday, March 28 at 8pm.
Wed24Apr20195:30 pmBallynahinch Castle Hotel, Recess, Connemara, Co. Galway
Ballynahinch Castle Hotel in association with Occasional Press are delighted to announce the launch of This Flight Tonight by Tony Curtis & illustrated by David Lilburn on Wednesday 24th April at 5.30pm.This Flight Tonight is published to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Alcock and Brown flight by Occasional Press in collaboration with Ballynahinch Castle.On the 15th of June 1919, a Sunday morning, Captain John Alcock and Lieutenant Arthur Whitten Brown landed their Vickers Atlantic Vimy in Connemara, close to the Marconi Transmitting Station on Derrigimlagh bog, a few miles beyond the town of Clifden. A plane had completed the very first non-stop flight of 1,900 miles across the vast emptiness of the Atlantic Ocean from Newfoundland to Ireland.In a weave of archive documentation with his original narratives and poems, poet Tony Curtis explores the remarkable story of Alcock and Brown’s daring and dangerous journey into the unknown. His vivid account is packed with fascinating details of the flight and also gives us insights into the personalities of the two men, picking up their lives in the wake of the First World War - a war in which they had both fought and which had finally ground to its end barely seven months before they undertook their renowned flight out into the Newfoundland night and on into History.The book is published in a paperback edition of 500 and in a special hardback limited edition of 150 carrying an original print by David Lilburn and Tony Curtis, 125 of which are available for sale.Paperback edition: €22.00Hardback edition: €45.00

About the event
United Technologies Research Centre is at the forefront of the development of new technologies enabling the next generation of air-travel, which will see a transition to more electric and potentially, all electric aircraft.
In this presentation Dr Diarmaid Hogan and Dr Ray Foley will present an overview of the challenges facing the industry as it journeys towards an electric future and the potential solutions and technology requirements needed to achieve this ambitious goal. The transition from hydraulic and pneumatic systems to electric systems, and from conventional propulsion to hybrid-electric propulsion places UTC and UTRC in a unique position globally to deliver technologies supporting the future of air travel. This will be a key element in the contribution of the aerospace industry towards reducing greenhouse emissions, improve operating costs, lower noise, and improve reliability.
