Engineering Ireland is a project of the Irish Academy of Engineering, a learned society of the engineering profession founded in 1998 with the aim of advancing the science and practice of engineering in Ireland as an essential element in the development and advancement of living standards. One of the objectives of the Academy is to stimulate interest in the preservation and presentation of Ireland's engineering heritage, and to identify and highlight outstanding Irish engineering achievements. It was decided to chronicle the story of engineering on the island of Ireland and Dr Ron Cox, Director of the Centre for Civil Engineering Heritage, was appointed as Editor-in-chief and director of the project. The book aims to reflect the nature of engineering in all its facets, from military, civil, mechanical, electrical and other branches of the profession, to the successful completion of projects throughout Ireland. The first chapter provides an overview of the history of engineering in Ireland, how the profession evolved, education and training, and the establishment and growth of institutions such as the Institution of Engineers of Ireland. In succeeding chapters, the historical development of the different areas of engineering application is presented in more detail. This will provide an insight into the activities of the engineering profession and enable members of the public to appreciate the significant and invaluable contributions made by Irish engineers over many decades to the quality and advancement of Irish life.
