Richard Crosbie was the first Irishman to make a manned flight. He flew in a hydrogen air balloon from Ranelagh, on Dublin's southside to Clontarf, on Dublin's northside in 1785. Crosbie was from Crosbie Park, near Baltinglass, Co. Wicklow. He studied at Trinity College. Crosbie launched several balloons containing animals before attempting the first human flight on Irish soil.
