Country towns are an important part of Irish identity whose stories reflect formative periods of town foundation in Ireland, from Gaelic monastic sites to Anglo-Norman colonial settlements to early modern plantation towns. The complexity of Irish civilization is brought to life in the stories of these fourteen towns which include Kells, Sligo, Dungarvan and others. Illustrated with photographs, maps, and more.
