The Antiquities of County Clare Book Cover
The Antiquities of County Clare
Ordnance Survey Letters, 1839
by John O'Donovan & Eugene Curry

The Examiner
March 1998

Their records of the county based on a typescript of their original manuscripts prepared in 1928 by Rev. Micheal O'Flanagan, have now been newly published as The Antiquities of County Clare (CLASP Press, €21.00). The production is a credit to the Clare LocAl Studies Project, which was set up by four members of County Clare Library staff in co-operation with FÁS. There are numerous original maps and several illustrations features and ruins. Dr. Willie Nolan of U.C.D. provides a scholarly introduction, and his comment that "this collection breathes life into the landscape and serves as a measure of both loss and survival" is a description that befits the book beautifully.
