Studies in local history
Karina Holton, Brian Ó Daláigh & Liam Clare, editors
This significant book is the first attempt to understand the problems of evolution in Irish villages from the local perspective. These essays contrast and compare particular villages from a wide geographical and temporal range, dealing with landlord, industrial, fishing and medieval villages.
