Lough Corrib, Its Shores and Islands: with Notices of Lough Mask

By William R. Wilde

An 1867 account of all that is historic, picturesque, and beautiful in this grand Lough Corrib region, with its sacred islands, its ancient battle grounds, raths, and tumuli; its splendid ruins of castles and abbeys, written by a man who knows and loves it well.



Congratulations on the second edition

This is Belfast in the mid 1950s.

I remember it like that - but 20 years after this sketch, of course!
