Historic Ireland



EUR 18.24

The second of a pair of titles to explore Historic Ireland, and written by one of the country's foremost historians, this beautiful volume focuses upon the human dimension to give a real sense of a specifically Irish culture and tradition. The photographers, who travelled throughout Ireland to bring some classic images of well-known places to these pages, have produced some stunning work on cottages and castles, scenery and street scenes, but also many out-of-the-way locations which are just as important to Irish heritage. The text, from an accomplished writer and poet, is a wonderful read, both pithy and informative. With descriptions of famous Irish sons and daughters, it is also a superbly evocative record of how ordinary Irish folk have lived over the centuries.
