In a previous existence, she worked as a geneticist and statistician in agricultural research where, among other things, she judged pedigree cattle and developed a computer dating service for the country’s cows. But that’s another story!
She loved telling her ‘ingenious’ stories in books, talks, and walking tours around her native Dublin. As The Irish Times says, she has “a way of making her subject instantly accessible”.
It is with great regret and sadness that we inform you of the recent death of our Ingenious founder Mary Mulvihill, on 11th June 2015, following a short illness. Ave atque vale.
In keeping with her enthusiasm and energy, Ingenious Ireland goes onward and the tours will continue.
Guided tours of Dublin
The guided walking tours of ‘ingenious Dublin’ are always popular with the public, Dubliners and even scientific audiences. They are based on Ingenious Ireland, Mary’s award-winning book, which takes readers on a journey around Ireland’s natural, scientific and industrial treasures. The new MP3 podcast tours, mean more people can now enjoy these entertaining and informative walks.
