Shipbuilding in Waterford 1The story of the Waterford shipyards highlights the role of Quakers as entrepreneurs, and particularly as risk-takers, who were willing to fund new enterprises, providing rare economic relief to underdeveloped areas. Their shipbuilding ventures in Waterford were as technologically advanced as any similar development of the day. Shipbuilding in Waterford is richly illustrated and, coupled with the meticulously researched text, this makes the book an important addition to our understanding of Ireland’s industrial and cultural history.
