In Memoriam: Terry Noonan 1961 – 1968

Terry Noonan B.Sc., C. Eng., M.I.C.E. passed away suddenly on 3rd August 2017. 

He was a pupil at Dynevor School 1961-68 and he was President of the ODA in 2003.

As a Chartered Engineer, Terry enjoyed a prestigious professional career, which saw his expertise employed on such high profile engineering projects as the Millenium, Liberty and Wembley Stadia; the Wales National Pool in Swansea; and other projects including Swansea University Halls of Residence, the Tawe Barrage and Swansea’s Grand Theatre redevelopment.  He held senior positions at W S Atkins, Faber Maunsell and his own firm, TM Noonan Consulting; and in 2013 he was appointed Associate Professor, Engineering at Swansea University.

The link below will take you to a video in which Terry talks about his involvement in the construction of the Millennium Stadium:

During his school years Terry collected several sporting honours, playing in the Swansea Schools Cricket Team and the Swansea Schoolboys Football team; although he later switched to Rugby and played in the Dynevor First XV.  In “The Old Dy’vorian” No. 10 published in March 2007, Terry wrote an article (on pages 4-7) about the glory days of the Swansea Schoolboys Football Team that he played in.  Clearly, they really did achieve great things.
