Poverty before the Famine: County Clare 1835.
ed. Maureen Comber.
CLASP Press, Clare County Library H.Q., Ennis, Co. Clare.
184 pp + 4 plates, Price: €20.00, Hardback, ISBN: 1 900545 01 2

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.
