About: Today, the area regarded as the Wicklow Uplands is mostly included within the Wicklow Mountains National Park. While permanent inhabitants of this area may be as rare as the Abominable Snowman, there is nonetheless a rich social history story to be told. This ranges from the prehistoric period through to the centuries of active resistance to English rule. This study of the history and heritage of the Wicklow Uplands was undertaken at the request of the National Parks and Wildlife Service (Eastern Division).
