A delicate, lyrical picture of a gentle pre-war society, of Irish history and troubled Anglo-Irish relations, and of a delightful family. This story reverberates with the enchantment of falling in love and with the desolation of bereavement.
This history is the first published history of Woodlawn, a vibrant region of County Galway, based on over 10 years of research. The authors have covered all aspects of the area, and collected together a poignant set of illustrations that chart its development over time.
