Lettice Baroness Offaly and The Siege of Geashill. By Clemens von Ow
Lettice Baroness Offaly and The Siege of Geashill by Clemens von Ow tells the remarkable tale of the widowed Lady Lettice Digby and her defence of Geashill Castle in 1641-1642 which is a true story to rival any TV drama! The author traces the history of the Castle and its ownership from the 12th century and provides transcripts of the letters exchanged between Lady Lettice under siege in her castle, and her aggressors the O’Dempseys. All relevant manuscript material has been sourced and transcribed and the book is lavishly illustrated.
