Ennisby Brian Ó Dálaigh
Number 25 in the Irish Historic Towns Atlas series, Ennis traces the growth of this western town from its early O’Brien foundation at Clonroad, to the medieval town that developed around the Franciscan friary, to its function as an early modern market town, right through to the twentieth century. Over 15 early maps and old views are presented in colour on A3 sheets with additional thematic maps and illustrations in the accompanying text. An extensive topographical gazetteer documents over 1,200 sites in Ennis and is accompanied by an essay explaining the urban morphological development of the town. CD-ROM included.
