About our Section

The Irish Section covers Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, hosting events in Belfast, Dublin and Cork. Key themes of our events include; the activities of the gas network operators in Ireland and renewable sources of energy.

We're currently looking for individuals to join the Irish Section Committee which meets bi-monthly in person and via teleconference. This is a great opportunity to shape the activities of the Section including future events. Please get in touch, using the email address above, if you're interested.

Chair

The current Chair of our Irish Section is James McStravog. 

James is a Chartered Engineer with over 10 years’ experience in the Natural Gas distribution industry. James joined McNicholas Construction in 2009 as a Graduate Engineer, achieving Chartered Gas Engineer status with IGEM in 2012. 

James is the Principal Engineer for Kier (previously McNicholas Construction), the main contractor for the three gas distribution companies currently operating in the North of Ireland. In this role, James is heavily involved in the design and development of engineering solutions, as well as providing technical engineering guidance and support to the Operations teams to ensure all on site activities comply with regulatory, health & safety and best practice standards. 

During James' tenure as Chair he's looking to build on the success of the previous Section Chairs by holding several events including the re-introduction of the Irish heat of the Young Persons Paper Competition (YPPC) as well as arranging a technical visit or two!
