Dictionary of Irish Architects 1720 - 1940

Engineer, of Dublin. Nicholas O'Dwyer was born in Rahan, Co. Limerick, in 1895 and attended St Colman's College, Fermoy. He studied engineering at University College, Dublin, graduating in 1916, and followed a post-graduate course from 1916 to 1917.(1) In the summer of 1919 he worked on the Department of Agriculture's Tillage Survey and for the academic year of 1919-20 taught engineering at Limerick Technical School. He was then caught up in the independence struggle, in which he played an active role as brigade engineer and battalion commander in the East Limerick Brigade. On 8 February 1921 he was appointed an engineering inspector in the pre-Truce Department of Local Government, and on 1 July 1922 joined the staff of the new Ministry of Local Government with the same rank. He was promoted to the post of assistant chief inspector in 1928. In 1930 he was appointed commissioner to administer the affairs of Kerry County Council, which had been dissolved on account of irregularities in its procedures.(2) At about the same the Public Health Section of the League of Nations selected him as to be a member of the committee of experts formed to prepare a report in preparation for the European Conference on Rural Hygiene in 1931. In July 1931 he was promoted to the position of chief inspector for the Ministry of Local Government, but within a year he had resigned.(3) He then established a private engineering consultancy in Dublin; he was also retained by a number of local authorities in various parts of the country to carry out drainage, water supply and housing schemes. Water supply and sewerage schemes were to be his principal business for the remaining twenty-five years of his life. His office was a thriving one, and many young engineers gained their first engineering experience in it.

O'Dwyer died in October 1957, leaving a widow, two sons and two daughters.(4) One of his sons, Sean, also became an engineer.(5) His leisure interests included hunting and show jumping, in which he himself competed. He was master of the South Dublin Harriers for nine years in succession.
