Eight parish reports edited and arranged
from the first report on the Condition of the Poorer Classes in Ireland,
1835. CLASP are not quite right in saying this material is now for the
first time made accessible to the general public. The Irish University
Press surely did that in the early seventies [they didn't] - and not a
million miles from Ennis. A handsome little production.
