'A recent edition to the excellent Maynooth Studies in Local History series, Tristernagh Priory is a diligently and thoroughly researched exploration of the history of the Augustinian foundation at Kilbixy, near the Westmeath/Longford border [...] This account is detailed but clear and well-written, so will be enjoyed by both general and academic audiences alike', Archaeology Ireland (Spring 2019).

'A very worthwhile contribution to our understanding of the role of the religious institutions in the colonial settlement of Ireland in the late medieval era. It is a welcome addition to both academic knowledge and local information', Rory Masterson, Ríocht na Midhe (2019).
