Charabancs Millinery and Telegraphy: Unravelling Marconi’s First Letterfrack Station on Diamond Hill

Little is known about Marconi’s Letterfrack stations (there were three distinct sites). His first station was in the infirmary, at the infamous Letterfrack Industrial School, one of the few Marconi station buildings still standing in Ireland. He installed an extensive mast system pointing in four directions from the infirmary building.

Recent information from an unexpected source has revealed a significant proportion of the station layout.
