New Book: Famine, Murder and Eviction

My new book, which charts the most important historical events and folklore that have shaped not only Gweedore, but which have had ramifications across the world. The parish has seen events that have been pivotal to Irish history but also to the story of America, the United  Kingdom and Australia. Events that have shocked the world, shook the political establishment, and led to social and political change.  Such as: Canon James McFadden – The land league campaigner and parish priest who was accused of the murder of RIC Inspector William Martin. Blackjack Adair and the Derryveagh evictions - It is often said that everyone is well thought off when they die, but there is one man with links to Gweedore of whom that can never be said. He was the Landlord ‘Black’ Jack Adair, the mastermind of the infamous Derryveagh Evictions.  Read these tales and much much more.   €15 plus post and packaging. Buy now using this link
