Ballinrobe - Aspects of a Visual History

There has been a great response to a soft launch of BallinrobeAspects of a Visual History.

According to Gerry Glennon, Mid West Radio “the book is suitable for most age groups, easy to read and contains a wealth of information on Ballinrobe written in an easy, user friendly writing style”. 

This 108 page publication is priced at the very reasonable cost of only €10.00 (plus P & P by post).  It contains over 160 photographs and images of Ballinrobe from archaeological sites, ruins, plans, drawings, buildings, paintings, photographs and documents.

Part of the book is in colour with the first 4 chapters in chronological order from Neolithic times to the nineteen hundreds. The fifth to eight chapters include articles on the cavalry and infantry barracks at Ballinrobe. Information of the Knox, Kenny and Cuff families is included, also details on the original Bower’s Walk and the establishment of the workhouse. Extensive endnotes and a bibliography are included.

A lovely memory or gift for all Ballinrobe people. Hope you enjoy this book and we hope others will write more about Ballinrobe’s history/heritage in time to come; remember “Capture it before it is lost forever”.
