Description

The advent of railways to Ireland allowed a substantial influx of visitors, aided by the 'Tourist Ticket' system developed for the Railway Companies. In 1854 the potato famine is still a recent memory, and the living conditions of the local inhabitants do not go un-noticed in this overview, where politics are never far from the surface. At times rhapsodising, at times tending to the obsequious, the anonymous author's wry humour and sharp wit is intermingled with history, topography, engineering, biography and architectural comments. This edition is re-set, with a new index, and reprints forty contemporary hotel advertisements from across the country.
