"More Irish Country Towns a continuation of the first volume on Irish country towns which was published in 1994. The story of Irish towns reflects the formative periods of town foundation: from Gaelic monastic sites to Anglo-Norman boroughs and to early modern plantation towns as well as eighteenth-century estate towns. A town plan and an evocative black-and-white illustration helps to establish the individuality of each town. A map showing the location of all the towns included in this volume and their mode of origin provides quick orientation. These essays are an introduction to the historical significance of the varied forms of our country towns." - Back cover.
