This is an updated and enlarged version of the two-volume 'People and Places in Irish Science and Technology', published in 1985 and 1990. The large volume presents pen-portraits of men and women involved in Irish science and technology. It is a step in redressing the neglected history of Irish science. In its thematic scope it should assist in bridging the gap between the earlier Irish scientific tradition and the present scientific activities of our universities and research institutes.
