There are so many great stories about Newmarket-on-Fergus and its people. Some involve high drama with heroes and nad villains , fires and gun fights, shipwrecks, mysterious apparitions and bankruptcy. Others are more ordinary, being about work, play,dancing and very occasionally stealing a cow.

All human life is here, from soldiers to bishops,rebels, feminists, and one actual saint. But they all had one thing in common: that they lived in, or passed through this particular small corner of the planet.

You will find many wonderful photos; some taken in the past, others more recent,showing what traces reamin. Here they are together for the first time. In full colour, this book is packed with a mixture of brilliant photos and stories from the history of the parish.

The very best stuff featured here on-line is included, plus there’s loads of never-before-seen photos and many untold stories too. Bunratty Castle’s most famous battle, the Ballycar teacher who inspired Michael D. Higgins, Shannon’s first airplane crash and local links with Daniel O’Connell, Eamon de Valera and The Beatles.
