Filled with breathtaking photography, this book captures the visual essence of one of the world's oldest countries, and leads us on a county-by-county journey through the splendour of its landscape and the drama of its past. From County Armagh and Antrim in the north to County Wexford and Wicklow in the south, from the jagged rocks and thunderous Atlantic waves of the west coast to the quieter shores of the Irish Sea, from the bustling city of Dublin to the industrial landscape of Belfast, Ireland is full of unique attractions. This book is part of the "Photographic Journey" series, which features wonderful photography that allows the reader to discover the beauty and sites of countries or cities around the world. Each book also offers a historical introduction. It includes 153 beautiful full colour photographs by the celebrated Irish photographer David Lyons, many reproduced as full-page and double-page spreads.
