Book Description

What was a mark? Livery of seisin? Letters patent? This remarkable Dictionary of Irish Local History will be able to tell you. Entries are fully cross-referenced and come replete with full biographical paraphernalia to enable readers to engage in further reading. Primarily intended for local historians, but the interconnectedness of the local and wider worlds is recognised by the inclusion of a range of entries relating to national institutions, religion, archaeology, education, land issues, lay associations and political movements. It is an indispensable work, which will enable local historians to make better sense of the evidence for the past.

5.0 out of 5 stars Irish Reference 26 Feb. 2005
Format:Paperback
One of the most important reference works about Ireland! A treasury of fascinating unknown words and terms that will delight not only the Irish historian but also anyone interested in Irish culture and language. This work contains hundreds of entries most of which cannot be found anywhere else. The essential tool for any serious reader of Irish history and a joy for the casual browser.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Publication ever for Irish Local History 10 July 2009
By David Edward Rencher - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
For the local historian and genealogist, there is not a better publication on the planet for understanding the needed vocabulary, structure, governement and ecclesiastical offices, records created and antiquated terminology of Ireland than this book. It is a shame that it is out of print and no longer available. Mercier Press needs to push very hard to get this back in print and available to the public - if you agree, please send them a note, I did.
