LostIreland: 1860–1960 presentsa panoramic sweepof Ireland's forgotten built heritage. Fromwar and insurrection, to prosperity and development,the changes wrought by history havemeant that a whole swathe of our built pastno longer survives, save through the magicof the camera lens. Drawingon a variety of photographic archives,this book offers awide sample of what was lost to these changes:the humble mud huts of the transient labourer,and the ‘thatched mansions' of the prosperousfarmer; the edifices of industrial innovationand technology; the grand homes ofthe well-to-do, including the infamousbighouse'.

Organized by county, LostIreland revealsa layer of Irish historywhich is both fascinating and nostalgic, notjust in its ‘bricks and mortar' but also inthe events and the people who inhabited thosesettings.
