Ready for Our Close-up

Leading independent TV production company, Moondance Productions was recently filming here at Russborough for its new television series of Great Irish Interiors for RTÉ.

Each programme focuses on a major restoration project at a great house, following the experts whose task it is make these historic buildings look again like what they did at the height of their glory. Our episode trails Russborough's Curator, Pauline Swords as she leads the quest to restore Milltown Collection pieces to the house, using archival sources to inform key acquisitions, loans and of course, display. The programme charts the sensitive challenge of how best to integrate the outstanding Beit and Milltown collections, and the exciting efforts to bring to life the story of one of Ireland's most exquisite great houses.

Previous episodes have featured notable Irish buildings such as Doneraile Court, Emo Court and Kylemore Abbey. An air date has not been confirmed yet.
