Breaking Ground: The Story of William Thomas Mulvany
At age eighteen, William Thomas Mulvany had assisted in the first Ordnance Survey of Ulster and Connaught, he went on to supervise the drainage of the Shannon and then planned the Shannon-Erne waterway. In Famine time, he directed thousands of workers in relief schemes. From these beginnings, he set his sights on Germany, a venture which resulted in one of the most successful careers in the history of Irish enterprise.
