“It is with much sadness that alumni of Geology at UCC will learn of the death of Ted Nevill, one of the father figures of modern Geology at UCC. Ted had been unwell for some time and passed away on 11th September 2006. Ted was born in New Ross in 1925 and was awarded a Foundation Scholarship to Trinity College in 1945 and a senior Moderatorship in 1947. He graduated PhD in 1951, evidently the first PhD in Geology from a University in Ireland. He taught Geology at Trinity until 1959, when he moved to UCC, becoming Statutory Lecturer and Head of a two person Department of Geology. This re-established Geology as a separate discipline at UCC. He published the then standard text “Geology and Ireland” in 1963 and retired in 1986. Dr Ivor MacCarthy was his first PhD student and the first PhD Geology graduate from UCC. Ted remained active in Geology and the Department long after his retirement, residing in office space provided in the gate lodge by the main entrance to campus. Ted was legendary for his encyclopaedic knowledge of natural history and
Irish Geology, his wit and his stories, we will all miss him.”.2,1,4
