At long last, we have finally compiled a book on the parish history of Claregalway. It is a substantial book, which includes over 100 photographs. It covers about 750 years of history and culture, beginning around the year 1250 with the foundation of the Franciscan Friary. It has chapters on agriculture, the Clare River, the Castle, the Abbey, GAA, the old school, old landlords, etc.
We’ll be giving it to the printers in the first week in September for a limited edition. We’re planning to have a celebratory book launch in mid November.
More details to come. So watch this space!
