Old Galway – M. D. O’Sullivan.
Out of stock
Old Galway is the most important work on the early history of Galway. A lifetime’s research and dedication went into the writing of it. The author surveys the period – from the foundation of the City to its conquest by Cromwell – using the insights and language of a modern scholar. She looks at the history of Galway against the larger background of European events, which deeply coloured our past. Professor O’Sullivan has woven her historical tapestry with great skill, ingenuity and objectivity covering not only the political history of Galway but, also giving great insight into life in the City during the period. Her bibliography is, in itself, a revelation, and a key towards further research and knowledge. This rare and second hand book is in very good condition and the dust jacket is slightly torn from shelf wear.
