Product Description

Tommy Harris Volume 3 Photographs of Clara and its people

This is the third and final book of the ‘Tommy Harris Photographs of Clara and its People Trilogy. Both previous books were well received and we hope that this one will be equally popular. While Tommy left thousands of photos, there is a large overlap of people, places and events among them but we have, as far as possible, managed to present photos that were not seen in the previous books. As there were a large number of Tommy’s photos unidentified, we decided to include one section of unnamed photos in this book. We hope the reader will find them interesting.

All articles in this book relate to Clara in years gone by and were sourced from the following — ‘The Parishes of the Diocese of Meath 1867-1940’ by Rev. John Brady, ‘The Freeman’s Journal’, ‘Westmeath Examiner’ and the Offaly Historical Society. We hope that these will also be of interest to the reader.

Over the years compiling these three books has been a very interesting and enjoyable challenge for us and we thank sincerely all those who in any way helped us to produce them; those who sponsored the books, contributed articles or gave of their time to identify the photos.
