The sixth volume in the Irish County History Series.
This is the most comprehensive interdisciplinary study ever undertaken on Ireland’s biggest county. Archaeologists, medievalists, Celtic scholars, geographers, folklorists and historians combine to provide an attractive account of a key region.
Twenty-five original essays by distinguished scholars place Cork in its local, national and European contexts. The nature of county Cork’s society throughout recorded history is the central theme of this stimulating book. The interaction between natives and newcomers as revealed in rural and urban settlements is another primary focus.
Patrick O’Flanagan is Associate Professor of Geography in University College Cork.
Cornelius G. Buttimer is Lecturer in Irish in University College Cork.
All interested in getting to know Ireland through its regions. Cork people at home and abroad. Suitable for both the academic and general reader.
