’This book gladdens the heart with a sense of the richness of Ireland, past and present. It is one of the most delightful books about Ireland, and about rivers here or elsewhere, that I have come across.’ - Benedict Kiely, Irish Times

Book slightly shop soiled.

Goodly Barrow is a long-unavailable classic that charts the history and character of Ireland's second-longest river, from the Slieve Bloom Mountains to the sea in Waterford.

T.F. O'Sullivan's riverine narrative embraces legend and song, literature and anecdote, viewing Irish history through the prism of the waterway: from the early tribal kingdoms of the Celts, to the Vikings and Normans who made passage up the estuary, leaving a legacy of castles, abbeys, monasteries and towns; from the Tudor and Cromwellian settlements on the fertile plains of Carlow and Kildare, to Quaker bridge-builders and Huguenot refugees.

It opens up a little-known part of Ireland's countryside and heritage, and is an invaluable guide for boaters and armchair travellers alike.
