Drystone Walls of the Aran Islands Paperback

Drystone Walls of the Aran Islands
Exploring the Cultural Landscape

Mary Laheen

ISBN 9781848890251

The Collins Press

The Aran Islands produced writers such as Liam O'Flaherty and Tim Robinson who were inspired by their surroundings. The drystone-wall field-boundary system of the islands is one of Ireland's richest cultural landscapes, retaining remarkable continuity with the past - Celtic occupation, Christianity, invasion, famine and evictions - a unique combination of the forces of humankind and nature. This book explores this landscape, which is threatened by the change. The author outlines the background history and factors that have influenced the landscape and looks at one ceathrú or quarter of a townland, a specific farm in that ceathrú, and the pattern of landholding and farming practised today.
