Larry Brennan, 

in association with Clare Roots Society, 
will officially launch his latest book on O Connell Street, 
on Thursday the 6th of December at 8 pm in the Old Ground Hotel Ennis. 
The book will be available for sale on the night for €15.
The main purpose of the book is for genealogical purposes 
in order to allow current and future generations to trace their families and the place where they came from.
The Book has been prepared in an attempt to set a template for other roads and estates
 to research their background and records for future generations and the details associated with the street or area. 
To this end, Larry reviews the available records he found for the individuals associated with the 89 buildings on the street. 
The book also  includes a number of old photographs not previously published along with advertisements and invoices,  
The book contains over 150 pages including the Historical and Archaeological Background of Ennis 
associated with dates from the 10th Century to 2012 along with articles on Daniel O' Connell, O'Connell Monument, 
William Turner de Lond and the Old Courthouse, the destructive fire in Ennis 1878, suicide in the Confession Box, 
the troubles and the arrival of the Belgians, German & Chinese to the street. 

The book also includes  the history associated with the post office network along with the Rink & Gaiety Cinema's, etc..
