About: Perhaps Halloween is an appropriate occasion on which to showcase this publication. Gravestones have obvious genealogical value but in this book the author highlights the artistic quality and the social and religious background to the creation of headstones in 18th century Wicklow. Many of the examples shown are located in the southern and western half of the county. This book was published by the Heritage Office of Wicklow County Council as one of the outcomes of the County Wicklow Heritage Plan. It is lavishly illustrated with colour photographs in an A4 landscape format.
Chapters: Preface — Introduction — The Purple Slate Headstones — The Aughrim School of Granite — Denis Cullen of Monaseed – The Glendalough Mason — The Blue Slate Headstones — Stone Masons at the Turn of the 19th Century — Notes — Further Reading — Indexes.
