River Slaney, From Source to Sea; John Duffy
Condition: As New
In our busy world, we all cross bridges with little consideration of these structures or their impact on our history and communications over the centuries. Communities grew at river crossings more quickly than anywhere else. Whether it be high up in the Glen of Imaal or at the broad waters of Ferrycarrig, the history of the River Slaney revolves around its bridges. Read about the history of the Irish Defence Forces in the Glen of Imaal, Michael Dwyer and Father John Murphy in 1798, Wexford's seafaring tradition, and the Slaney God Head on the Custom House, Dublin. Modern pursuits such as Fishing and Boating on the River Slaney are also well documented.
