The fifth volume in the series. For a small Atlantic island, Clare Island, Co. Mayo, possesses an impressive array of field monuments. The 5,000-year-old megalithic tomb, the dozens of fulachtaí fia and the series of spectacularly sited coastal promontory forts all offer fascinating insights into prehistoric settlement. A well-preserved series of architectural remains, including two early nineteenth-century lighthouses and a signal tower, as well as a medieval castle and the Abbey, also serve to illuminate island life from medieval times down to the nineteenth century.
