When asked what was the principal source of her inspiration, Lady Gregory of Coole Park promptly replied:” Kiltartan, my own village, it has done everything for me”. The book : Kiltartan, Many Leaves, One Root, Shows how Kiltartan is a truly inspirational place.
It is rare to find three heritage centres in a small parish but Kiltartan is proud of The Gregory Museum at famed Kiltartan Cross, W.B. Yeats’s Thoor Ballylee and Coole Park which Yeats claimed was the most beautiful place in the world.
The book gives one a sense of place and the extensive genealogical sources are an invaluable help in tracing one’s roots. The diaspora , through the medium of the Ireland Reaching Out website will savour every line of this book. Every road, field, ruin and well has a story to tell and this is supplemented by authentic, written primary sources. This book can be recommended without reservation.
It's a hardback book, so it's quite heavy - hence the shipping charges of 10 Euros within Europe and 15 Euros elsewhere.
