During 1842-43 Cooke wrote a series of articles for the Galway Vindicator on the area around New Quay in north Clare. A scrapbook of these articles, with notes (given here in itallics) and illustrations by the author, was donated to Clare County Library and is reproduced here.

Clare County Library wishes to thank Clare Local Studies Project for preparation of raw text for this publication.
