5.0 out of 5 stars Set of tightly written essays., 4 July 2011
This review is from: Irish Country Towns (Thomas Davis Lecture) (Paperback)
Thomas Davis lectures, a magnificent tradition broadcast weekly during the winter on our flagship Radio channel. This edition contains the story of urban development in Ireland, each an 'urbs' in the provinces, and there is a second volume which was delivered separately. Ireland"s towns date mainly since plantation times, i.e. post 1650. These are a fascinating set of stories, contrasting well with similar histories of towns and cities in England. The info contained in these lectures, written to be delivered each in 45 minutes, offers knowledge it would be difficult to find anywhere else, in one volume.
Each writer is an expert on the history of his/her particular town/city. There are excellent historical maps, and I for one, was delighted to purchase a copy of this particular series.
