Clarecastle Ballyea Heritage and Wildlife Committee recently published a fabulous book about the history of the Clarecastle Ballyea Parish. It follows two years of interesting work collating information on the history and heritage of Clarecastle and Ballyea. The book contains interesting stories and anecdotal facts about the area including a whole section for example on local field names and where those names originated. A fascinating read compiled by a most interesting and talented group of local people.
The book is available from local post offices and shops at a cost of just €20.
