Famous Irish Inventors are James Martin ‘Ejector Seat’, Nicholas Callan ‘Induction Coil’, Tony Allen ‘Spidercatcher’, John Philip Holland ‘Submarine Torpedo Boat’, John Tyndall ‘Light Pipe (forerunner of fibre-optics)’, Lucien Bull ‘High-speed photography / improved ElectroCardioGraph’, Dr. Francis Rynd ‘Hypodermic Needle & Syringe’.

The economy of Ireland has transformed in recent years from an agricultural focus to a modern knowledge economy, focusing on services and high-tech industries and dependent on trade, industry and investment. In terms of GDP per capita, Ireland is ranked as one of the wealthiest countries in the OECD. A study by The Economist found Ireland to have the best quality of life in the world. The 1995 to 2000 period of high economic growth led many to call the country the Celtic Tiger.

Life style

Many customs and traditions, like names, recipes, or holiday celebrations are handed down from generation to generation so far back no one really remembers where or how they originated. Some originated out of climatic, social or economic conditions over a long period in history.

These customs and traditions were then carried to other countries when people emigrated because they were what were familiar and they brought a touch of comfort and a sense of home to a new and strange place. Over time they became part of the fabric of this new culture.

You may be surprised to find that many things you take for granted as part of your culture, family traditions or lifestyle really began long ago on a small island called Ireland.
