About: In the course of writing a short guide for tourists visiting Baltinglass Abbey, the local rector, Canon Claude Chavasse, found there was so much material that a local history book could be written. This he did shortly after moving to County Waterford. The book is an excellent introduction to the history of the areas that comprise the three parishes.
