Irish Round Towers, by Hector McDonnell
Hector is a polymath - a famous painter, historian and genealogist he is also a writer and author of several books on The Flight of the Earls, the architecture and history of Ireland.
He lives in co Antrim and in the United States.
This beautifully presented book has a collection of charming period engravings of Ireland's round towers complemented by an original interpretation on the origin of these monuments.
Hector is the son of the 8th Earl of Antrim. The late Earl had prevented the coast of Antrim from being developed by encouraging the National Trust to acquire it in order to preserve its beauty for future generations to come.
So History and Conservation runs in the Family: a gem of a booklet.
