Kilcooley: Land and People in Tipperary.



by W. G. Neely. ISBN:


By the most Rev. G. O. Simms, PhD Litt.D. D.D. (formerly Archbishop of Armagh, primate of all Ireland)

Kilcooley's story, stretching over seven centuries, makes fascinating reading. William Neely, with an obvious love of County Tipperary's countryside, has presented the history of an ancient Abbey of outstanding interest, together with the annals of a parish and the family life of the big house. Forestry, mining and farming, as well as the social and sporting atmosphere in this corner of the country, are included in this vivid and well-documented account of the locality. Of special interest are the letters, you're there to unpublished, from the archives of the former and comments on the Ponsonby families.  The charm and perceptive comments of his correspondence the light on the struggles and chequered events of the 18th century Ireland. Later enterprises and developments are described with insight and understanding by the author, who has certainly helped his readers to discover something more of Ireland and its problems in a land rich historical personalities, William Neely writes with great devotion about an area which is come to know intimately. He has enabled us to perceive that a study of parish can help forward a true understanding of past issues; a book of this kind can also give encouragement to the varied cultures and traditions in the community to work together for peaceful and fruitful future.
