About: An essay which examines how, in the second half of the seventeenth-century, a ‘new’ Dunlavin came to be established on the site that it now occupies. In particular, the author examines the role of the Bulkeley family, especially Richard Bulkeley, Second Baronet of Dunlavin. Although it was a ‘planned town’ not all plans came to fruition, and over the subsequent centuries unforeseen developments occurred.
