This comprehensive guide is complete with a wealth of photographs and illustrations of Ireland's historic towns

Exploring Ireland's Historic Towns sheds new light on the streets and squares of Ireland, drawing our attention to the historic context in which they developed. Following on from the success of Exploring Georgian Dublin and Exploring Irish Castles, Pat Dargan now traces the history of the construction of Irish towns through each of their historical phases. He highlights the social and political contexts that lay behind each phase, identifies the individuals responsible for the town developments, and explores the ideals and motivations that drove them. Each phase is presented alongside each towns principal features and characteristics.

This comprehensive guide is complete with a wealth of photographs and illustrations.

Pat Dargan is an architect and planner by profession, and lectures in physical planning and design in the Dublin Institute of Technology. He has made a special study of Irish towns, villages and their architecture and has published extensively on the subject.
