CLASP Press is delighted to make available
once again this fascinating Handbook to Lisdoonvarna and its Vicinity.
Its first appearance in 1876 coincided with a period of great growth at
the celebrated Spas of Lisdoonvarna. The Galway Steam Company landed daily
at Ballyvaughan and the midland Great Western Railway advertised Lisdoonvarna
as a prime destination in its Summer Excursions.
Unquestionably, the author knew the
area and its people from Liscannor to Oughtmama and the Blackhead to Kilnaboy.
The introduction was written by the late Cyril Ó Céirín,
author and poet, who could trace his ancestors in Lisdoonvarna back to
the 1700's. This introduction also includes an outline history of Lisdoonvarna
Spa up to the present day.
