Tales of the Anvil evokes a time when the forge served as the local meeting place, where news and gossip were exchanged; a time when the smith had a central role in rural communities and was highly-respected for his skills and expertise.

Eamon Doyle charts the trade in Wexford through the centuries, listing the blacksmiths and their locations in every parish. He also preserves the stories of the men who carried the pikes in 1798, of the sportsmen and patriots who worked at the anvil, those who struggled and those who thrived: establishing world-renowned industries.

Tales of the Anvil is a tribute to the forges and blacksmiths of County Wexford in which the author praises the wit and wisdom of those who knew the sound of the heavy sledge on red hot iron
