School honour for past President

Former ICE President, Adrian Long (second from right), has been added to the honours board for distinguished former pupils at the Royal School Dungannon in Northern Ireland.

Long was ICE President between 2002 and 2003 and is one of only 11 pupils from the past 200 years to be placed on the school’s honours board.

The school boasts notable alumni including the renowned contemporary artist Victor Sloan, 19th century engineer
and politician Sir William Crossley, and Royal Albert Hall engineer and architect Francis Fowke.

Before he was ICE President, Long was head of department, director of school and twice dean of the faculty of engineering at Queen’s University Belfast.

Since his retirement in 2006 he has been heavily involved in research and development with Macrete Ireland for the innovative FlexiArch bridge, which he patented in 2004.

Over 50 FlexiArch bridges ranging in span from 4m to 16m have now been installed in the UK and Ireland.
