On 20th July 1898 Guglielmo Marconi transmitted reports of the Kingstown Regatta by wireless to this building for newspaper publication. This was the first time in the world that radio was used in journalism. To mark the centenary of this historic event An Cathaoirleach Councillor Richard Conroy unveiled this plaque on 20th July 1998.
