Irish-designed software is a game changer for safe disposal of pharmaceutical waste

The aim of this literature review is to critically examine current practices within the pharmaceutical/chemical industry regarding handling transportation and disposal of chemical waste generated. Despite rules and regulations for their use, storage and transportation, hazardous chemicals may be involved in industrial and transportation incidents at anytime and anywhere (Chen et al, 1997). This raises the question of whether or not regulations and directives are effective tools in ...

Rebuilding Bannow – mapping the abandoned medieval Wexford town

The ruined church of St Mary’s of Bannow stands on a grassy headland at the mouth of Bannow Bay, in the south-east corner of Ireland. Cows graze up to the low stone walls of the graveyard that surrounds the roofless church. This is all that now remains of the once-thriving medieval town of Bannow. The location, the extent and the layout of the town have been the subject of speculation; it has been described variously, and erroneously, as having sunk under the sea, an Irish Heracleion, or ...

Stone bridges - history and heritage of masonry arch bridges in Ireland

There are about 25,000 masonry arch bridges in Ireland with spans exceeding two metres. These were built over a period of nearly 900 years, though the majority would have been built in the period 1775 to 1900. Due to their number and ubiquity, it is essential that those responsible for maintaining our roads, railways and canals have a good understanding of the nature of these bridges, including their construction, materials and typology. A good knowledge of bridges is also essential ...

Revealing the hidden medieval history of Clonmel's Old Bridge

The town of Clonmel in Co Tipperary is believed to have been founded by the de Burgos in the 13th century. From 1338 to 1583, the lands were owned by the earls of Desmond. In Tipperary: History and Society (1985), Bradley states that Bridge Street is mentioned as early as 1388 and the laneway east of it in 1424. A grant of murage and pontage was given in 1356. The bridge is depicted on the town’s coat of arms, which is similar to that of New Ross, and it should be noted that the bridge on ...

Implementing a management plan to increase energy efficiency in healthcare

Whitfield Clinic is a private hospital partnered with the University of Pittsburgh Medical Centre (UPMC) and situated on the outskirts of Waterford city.

The clinic opened in 2006 with the aim of improving the availability of healthcare services to the southeast region and has recently become the first hospital in the Ireland and the UK to achieve ISO 50001 energy-management accreditation. A key focus for Whitfield Clinic ...

Durability of concrete containing GGBS when exposed to freezing and thawing

The aim of the study is to investigate the effect of the replacement of Portland limestone cement (CEM II/A-L) with ground granulated blast furnace slag (GGBS) at different levels in concrete for exposure class XF after 200 cycles of freezing and thawing. This work is a part of an ongoing project developed in the materials laboratory of LAB Casey Concrete, Co Wexford, in co-operation with Warsaw University of Technology, Poland. Concrete is degraded by cycles of freezing and thawing. The ...
