~~ Logging Local Studies Sources Old & New ~~


Welcome to the West Wicklow Bookshelf.

This is an occasional blog which, over time, will hopefully build up into a useful starting point for anyone interested in researching West Wicklow history and society. The description of each item is accompanied by a cover image or logo, together with a link to the text or content of the document/website (if available).

The material logged here will include:

#1: Items on West Wicklow subjects / topics regardless of where they originate

#2: Items issued in West Wicklow regardless of subjects / topics covered

#3: Items produced or written by anybody who has an association with West Wicklow

#4: Items with a peripheral connection to West Wicklow

Any queries or comments may be relayed via the ‘Leave a Reply’ box at the bottom of this page or via the link on individual postings.

A Note on Placenames: Because there are variations in local spellings of placenames we will, for consistency, endeavour to use the spellings taken from the multi-volume ‘Place-Names of Co. Wicklow’, by Liam Price.

  1. Hello,
    Love your website, it’s very useful. I’ve recently published “Education in Wicklow” which details schools all over the county prior to 1825. If you’d like a review copy for your website, let me know and I can post it over to you. Details here: http://www.wickloweducationhistory.org/ (including index to the book)

    All the best,

    • Dear Michael,

      Thank you for you message. We’re glad you like the blog and find it useful. Thank you also for the offer of your new book. In actual fact we have managed to get our hands on a copy and we hope to log it very soon. Best of luck with the publication.

    • Dear Carmel,
      Thank you for your comment. Unfortunately, we only list materials of West Wicklow interest on this blog. We do not sell anything. We are not sure if copies of this booklet are still available or not. However, we will try to find out and get back to you.

    Do you only list material relating to West Wicklow or would you list publications relating to other areas in Co. Wicklow. If so how does one submit information about a publication .

    Do you have contact details for Michael Russell? That website appears to be out of action. I’m interested in getting for interview.

    Many thanks

    • Hi Margaret,

      Thank you for contacting us. We do not have any details for Michael Russell other than what is publicly available on the internet. As you say, the website relating to his books is not currently available. The Facebook page called Michael Russell Forgotten Cities has some contact details on the ‘About’ page. These may still be current.
