A Tribute to Mike Punch

PUNCH is delighted to publish a tribute to our founder, Michael Punch, on the 10th anniversary of his passing in 2011.

Mike was a giant of 20th century Structural Engineering in Ireland and abroad – he even worked on the Sydney Opera House design with fellow legendary Structural Engineer/Irish man Peter Rice!

This tribute is for those who knew him to reminisce on his inspiring life, both personally and professionally.  Additionally for those who did not know him, we hope this tribute will help you get a sense of the man, the legend, that was Mike Punch.

As was said about Socrates, “You can seek him in the present, you can seek him in the past, but you will never find his equal”!

Thanks to our colleagues who helped compile this tribute – enjoy all.
