The Islands of the Fergus Estuary
This book was written by Jackie Elger, a local historian and photographer and Dolores Meaney, an archivist and local historian. They look at the Fergus Islands of County Clare which lie on the estuary stretching from Clarecastle to Shannon and Kildysart.
They also examine the larger islands--their history, archaeology and foklore as well as the people who lived there. Their history is a icrocosm of Co Clare's history - from the monastic foundations of the early saints to a medieval Augustinian Abbey, from the castles of the Irish chieftains through Cromwellian times to the era of English landlords. It also presents a current photographic record of the islands plus a selection of older photographs and memories of past inhabitants.
