Cormac Ó Grada, Ireland: A New Economic History 1780-1939 (Clarendon Press 1994), cites Thomas Davis: Dr Kane [Resources, 1845] shows that the precious baltic iron, for which from £15 to £35 per ton is given, could be equalled by Irish iron smelted by turf for six guineas per ton. (Rep. in Griffith, Thomas Davis, The Thinker and Teacher, 1916, p.182; Ó Grada, p.315).Ó Grada remarks that Kanes denial that a lack of natural resources explained Irelands failure to industrialise was based [ ] in part on an over-sanguine assessment of the countrys coal and peat resources (p.315); according to Kane, the Munster coalfield was the most extensive development of the coal strata in the British Empire but efforts at working it proved costly and fruitless (p.317); Kane also enthused about the value of copper, lead, and precious mineral deposits (p.318).
Davis Coakley, Irish Masters of Medicine (Town House ?1993), remarks that that De Valera looked on Kane and his Industrial Resources as an economic mentor.
