"Waterford Scientists Preliminary Studies" by Donald Brady is now available from The Craft Shop at Lismore Heritage Centre.
The remarkable and little known story of County Waterford’s scientists includes the only Irish recipient of the Nobel Prize for Science, the optician who helped to build the Birr telescope and the Earl’s son whose name is enshrined in chemistry textbooks across the world.
Donald Brady served as Waterford County Librarian for almost twenty eight years. Devoted to the preservation and collation of the historical resources of the county Mr. Brady has brought a selection of his wide studies to print in recent years. Lismore Heritage Centre was honoured to host a lecture by Mr. Brady on his latest work as part of Science Week 2010 in November. At a very reasonably priced €10.00 "Waterford Scientists" makes wonderful reading for both scientists and historians.
