This volume, consisting of about 600 pages, is illustrated throughout with a diverse collection of photographs and documents that make the history both enlightening and enjoyable. We are deeply indebted to Canon Reuben and Máire for the time, energy and patience spent on research over many years and congratulate them on truly making this project a labour of love.
