"RIVER SLANEY from Source to Sea" by John Duffy
Our Gold member John Duffy
has recently written and published a book illustrating the bridges across the River Slaney in Ireland. John follows the river from its source at Lugnaquillia, in County Wicklow, to the estuary in County Wexford, illustrating each bridge in detailed graphite pencil drawings.
While the book concentrates on the many bridges, it is full of interesting anecdotes and stories; and it helpfully gives the true meanings behind the Anglicised original place names. The final chapters give general information on such diverse subjects as Rod Fishing and The River Gods of Edward Smyth. It's a most interesting read and generously illustrated by John's accurate pencil drawings.
