A Pictorial History of Tralee
Russell McMorran and Maurice O'Keeffe
Irish Life and Lore
This book contains over 100 photographs of Tralee and its vicinity, the majority of which have never been published before. The pictures are accompanied by a lucid and informative commentary which ranges from the neolithic to the first half of the twentieth century.
The main developments in the history of the town, since its foundation in the thirteenth century, are covered in some detail. There is also a great deal of new material on such diverse topics as the Slieve Mish, the May Boys, the Nineteenth Century Merchant Princes, and the Mount Hawk Races.
You can also read about the three Spa Fishermen who were awarded medals for a heroic rescue in Tralee Bay, and "The Liberator" - the Tralee bred horse who came second and third in five attempts at the Grand National.
