Lismore has, without doubt, a fascinating history, and is widely regarded as Waterford's most historic town.
From the foundation of St Carthage's monastery in AD 636, it has become a ducal appendage, the home of Sir Walter Raleigh, and even became Ireland's Tidiest Town along the way.
These days it is a self-confident, vibrant place and in this diverse collection of rare archive images the author captures the development of that identity.
He takes us through the changes in Lismore's industry, transport and schools as well as recording its sporting achievements, art in the parish and, of course, its inhabitants, producing a timeless volume that will enthral all those who know and love the area.
