Abstract: The history of maritime engineering typically concentrates on the development of significant ports, the evolution of technological advances, or the contribution of a singular individual. Rarely are small harbours, so prevalent on Irish and British coasts, studied seriously beyond the work of local historians, whose focus resides on the communities of these harbours.
