Local Books

Philip Watson has launched his new book "The Giant's Causeway and the North Antrim Coast" that I have found to be quite interesting and very useful when adding info to my site. It's a factual history of the Causeway and surrounding coastline with a few myths thrown in for good measure and several excellent representations as well as dated photographs of day gone by. Bibliography giving more information sources. All together a bargain at 7 sterling ($10US). More Info

I happened upon another book this time by Maureen Donnelly entitled "The Nine Glens" and as I discovered this is a revised edition of an earlier book. Again I believe this to be a very useful book when adding to my site. This book not only details the history, folklore and traditions of the Glens but also the surrounding countryside in an enjoyable and warm hearted manner with numerous poems, photographs and a wealth of the authors personal experiences and knowledge about the area.
