A BOOK ABOUT PORTLAOISE


My latest book is the most comprehensive one ever written about the town. Ranging from an account of life in Maryborough (the town’s former name) in the 1700’s, through a history of shopkeepers Main Street, to a vibrant survey of local music in the 20th century, these pages are teeming with townies of all descriptions.

Other chapters feature the long-forgotten Golden Croft, my fascination with the local Methodist chapel, and an unlikely blend of postal and personal history. Add to all this, hundreds of random facts drawn from four centuries and the result is a captivating guided tour through the history of Portlaoise.
