‘Should be on the shelves of everyone with a serious interest in industrial archaeology’  Industrial Archaeology Review

‘Gives keen insights into what went on in the 18th and 19th centuries’  Irish Examiner

Industrial Archaeology is the study of the history of industrial buildings, plant, transport and other infrastructure such as water and energy supply. Throughout Ireland we can see the often-derelict remains of our industrial past: distilleries, mills, factories, railways and canals. Ireland was the location of over 180 thriving breweries, 93 railway companies and numerous other industries.

By leading authority on the subject, this is the first comprehensive survey of Ireland’s industrial archaeology, examining major industrial activities, their technology and important surviving sites, the book is fully referenced and illustrated throughout. So from the windmill at Blennerville, County Kerry, to the shipyards in Belfast, this is a thorough survey of the physical expressions of Irish society in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries
