about

This guide to the 'forgotten stones' of early ecclesiastical sites and buildings is a lovingly detailed record of 82 churches secreted in the hundred-odd square miles of the Burren, a primeval limestones region of north County Clare, one heavily populated, encapsulating Ireland's Christian heritage. The physical remains and state or preservation of each church are carefully described, as are features of archeological and historic interest - altars, bullauns, carvings, crosses, sheela-na-gigs, wells - and accretions of legend and tradition. Over 120 photographs, a map and drawings, speak eloquently of the riches and reversals of a millenium of worship, remarkably concentrated in this luminous, compelling landscape.
