CLARE ROOTS SOCIETY presents 'WOMEN OF CLARE' ( LUCILLE ELLIS) & 'DRUMCLIFF [Section B]' (FLAN HEHIR)





CLARE ROOTS SOCIETY
presents 
two 'must have' books for those interested in the history of 
Co Clare.

 The book launch for both volumes will take place on
Thursday, November 9, 2017
at 8pm at 
the Old Ground Hotel

 Women of Clare is the third book for Lucille Ellis... her previous books have been Bindon Street and Bank Place and Ennis at Work in the 19th Century.

Women of Clare tells of the lives of 16 women who had a great influence in lives all over the world. These women came from all walks of life, from all manner of occupations.

Drumcliff (Section B) is the second publication for Flan Heir. His first was The Turnpike. Flan had the asssitance of his wife, Bella, in recording the gravestones, quite a mammoth task, considering the book contains 535 gravestones, covering names and dates of 1,135 people. 

It also includes a selection of obituaries from local newspapers covering the years from 1967-2016, which give a great deal more about family connections. The research was complemented by the use of drone technology to record the location of grave plots.

You can read full details with regards to both books in the article below. Please click on it to enlarge.




You can read the list of Clare Roots Publications here

For details re purchase, you can contact  secretary@clareroots.org
