O’Shea Container Shipping is a Burgundian shipbuilding and logistics company with global interests. It is a subsidiary of Caphiravian conglomerate Quicksilver Industries and employs 80,000 people worldwide. It is headquartered in Kongerhus, Burgundie.


Coming from a poor Gaelic family in Kuhlfros, Padraig O'Seaghdha saw no life for himself in his small inland village. Buying the only ticket he could afford, he immigrated to Burgundie in 1858. He was fascinated by the harbor and the ships and when he arrived in Kongerhus he took a job as a shipwright. He did not take to the work well, as he was often caught sketching instead of working and was soon fired. To make money for food he began selling his sketches. He was offered a job as a draughtsman for a small firm and soon became the preeminent designer. In 1873, he founded O'Shea Hull Design (having simplified the spelling of his name) with two other draughtsmen. In 1881, O'Shea Hull Design bought two fledgling merchant houses to become the O'Shea Shipping Company. This acquisition lead to the specialization of O'Shea's ship design strategy to merchant cargo ships. Blustered by the rising influence of the Burgundian merchant marine, O'Shea's business director, Seamus Hannigan began buying up smaller design houses and merchant concerns. By 1903 the O'Shea Shipping Company was the largest naval architecture firm in Burgundie.

With the passing of Padraig O'Seaghdha in 1917, at the age of 77, Seamus Hannigan took over. Under Seamus' tenure, 1917-1961, O'Shea diversified its assets across the maritime realm. Buying four shipyards suffering from bankruptcy, a marine engineering firm, a for-profit merchant marine college, and a harbor dredging company.

Having made large profits from major infrastructure contracts during the Pax Burgundia O'Shea expanded yet again on the 1990s, this time in the arenas of standard gauge rail and harbor design/construction. This diversification of its assets and its foreign investments helped it survive the Burgundian Great Recession unscathed.

Seeing the potential to assert itself as a world-class naval architecture and standardized container shipping firm on the global stage, O'Shea Shipping Company joined the Quicksilver family in 2007, as O’Shea Container Shipping.
