Did you ever see a big house in the countryside and wonder who used to live in such a property?

Have you ever wondered about the story behind such an old and historic house? This book reveals the story behind some of the greatest houses in Ireland. Maurice O'Keeffe, from Irish Life and Lore, has interviewed the surviving members of many of the Anglo-Irish and old Irish families who lived, and in many cases still live, in these great houses.

They have talked about their family histories, their links to the communities in which they are based and about the fascinating details of life in these houses. For the first time the families still living in and descendants of families that once lived in these houses speak about the ups and downs of life in Ireland from as far back as the 1600s.

With previously unpublished photographs and untold stories, this is a must-have book for those interested in the social history of Ireland.
