Tour WicklowThe Wicklow Way Tour Wicklow. The Wicklow Way is Ireland's first and most popular Waymarked Way, running between Marlay Park (Dublin) and Donegal, 82 miles (132 km) to the south. It offers varied and scenic walking on the flanks of the Wicklow mountains with loughs, rivers and historic remains. Much of the route lies over 1600 feet (500 metres) giving glorious views, and lower sections run through forests and farmland, over a mixture of tracks, roads and pathways rich in wildlife. This book contains all you need to plan and enjoy your holiday: drop-down map showing the whole route in five panels; waterproof paper throughout; the Way in sections, with summaries of distance, terrain and where to find food and drink; concise background on history, geology and wildlife; a special feature on the monastic city of Glendalough; planning information for travel by car, train, bus or plane; in full colour, with 70 photographs.

Memories of West WicklowMemories of West Wicklow: 1813-1939 (Classics of Irish History S.) The Hanbidge family originated in Gloucester, and came to Ireland in the seventeenth century. They have been settled in the Donard/Dunlavin area ever since, with branches in Dublin, and elsewhere. The Hanbidge memoirs provide a vivid and unique account of Protestant 'small farmer' life in West Wicklow in the nineteenth century, together with recollections of the 1798 rebellion. There are also glimpses of Jonathan Swift and members of the Synge family. Wiliam Hanbidge wrote at the behest of his daughter, setting down in a simple but detailed manner the life of his family, their farming practices, past-times, communal relations, religious views, and awareness of the outer world. His account of travelling to New York after the Famine with a party of boys is especially fascinating. No comparable account of his social group and class has ever been published. Mary Hanbidge's devoted private publication of her father's memoirs was eclipsed by the outbreak of the Second World War, when many copies were destroyed by bombing.

Surplus PeopleSurplus People: The Fitzwilliam Clearances 1847-1856 From 1847 to 1856, Lord Fitzwilliam arranged 'assisted passages' to canada for 6,000 men, women and children from his 80,000-acre Coolattin Estate in Wicklow. Most were destitute on arrival in Quebec and New Brunswick. Despite good intentions there was terrible misunderstanding. This book describes the clearances and how some of the families fared in Canada.
