    Book details

Did Ireland miss out on the Industrial Revolution as everyone is taught at school and college? Not if the remains of our industrial past are anything to go by: distilleries, breweries, textile mills, canals and railways, to name a few. Over 100,000 sites of industrial archaeological interest survive today, ranging from small rural lime kilns to the Ballincollig Gunpowder Mills in Cork at 435 acres, the second largest ever constructed in Europe. These sites are an important part of Ireland s historic landscape, only relatively recently recognised in legislation. Industrial Ireland 1750-1930 is the first book to describe Ireland s industrial past. The subject is detailed in 17 chapters, each dealing with a major industrial activity, its technology and important surviving sites. 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.
