Women of Clare is the third book for Lucille Ellis... her previous books have been Bindon Street and Bank Place and Ennis at Work in the 19th Century.
Women of Clare tells of the lives of 16 women who had a great influence in lives all over the world. These women came from all walks of life, from all manner of occupations.
Drumcliff (Section B) is the second publication for Flan Heir. His first was The Turnpike. Flan had the asssitance of his wife, Bella, in recording the gravestones, quite a mammoth task, considering the book contains 535 gravestones, covering names and dates of 1,135 people.
It also includes a selection of obituaries from local newspapers covering the years from 1967-2016, which give a great deal more about family connections. The research was complemented by the use of drone technology to record the location of grave plots.
