By Henry D. Inglis - Paperback, 105 Pages
'A Journey throughout Ireland, During the Spring, Summer and Autumn of 1834', Vol. 1, Part 2, is part of Clachan's ‘Local Histories’ series. It is an extracted account of Inglis’ journey from Cork to Kerry, Clare, The Shannon, Limerick and Athlone.
His mission was to establish if Ireland was an ‘improving county’. His observations are of great interest to family and local historians as they give an important insight into living standards and the relationship between the gentry, middlemen and the tenantry, as well as conditions in the towns he visited.
To make this text as accessible as possible and yet remain faithful to the original, Clachan editors have edited the text carefully, updating certain disused symbols, forms of spelling and punctuation. We have also provided an index and scholarly footnotes.
