About: This book is part of a series produced by the Archaeological Survey of Ireland, which aims to list all known archaeological monuments in each county. This Wicklow catalogue alone lists 1200 sites. It would be invidious to pick out just some places of major importance. Suffice to say that no matter what part of West Wicklow you come from, there is sure to be at least one item of archaeological interest listed here.
