Heritage Landscapes of the Irish Midlands and selected itineraries
The midland counties of Ireland contain a wealth of natural, archaeological and historical features. Some of these, such as Clonmacnoise, are well-known regionally or nationally, while the location and importance of others, such as St Manchan”s Shrine, although known locally and within academic circles, may be more closely guarded secrets, not having received the publicity of tourism promotion. This book aims not only to describe the well-known but also the many hidden jewels within this central area of Ireland. If this book has one aim, it is that the cultural richness revealed within its pages will enthuse readers to go and explore the Irish Midlands for themselves.
