Placenames and change in the Irish landscape
The Mercier Press, in association with Radio Telefiís Éireann
This book had its origins in a Thomas Davis lecture series broadcast by Radió Teilifís Éireann in 1984 under the title ‘Ireland: the geographic dynamic’. Twelve speakers dealt in broad outline with the evolution of the land, countryside and urban places of Ireland from the perspective of geography. They were primarily concerned with the role of human activity in creating places within the constraints of the natural environment. Illustrations have been added to provide a reference frame for the narrative.
