Irish architecture is not as well or widely known as it deserves to be. This book shows the wealth of what there is to see in the country-side and in the smaller towns, as well as in better-known centers and large cities. The authors range over the whole filed from pre-historic times till almost the present day. Half a lifetime of exploration and discovery has taken them into many unfamiliar places which they see with fresh eyes. Ireland Observed will, we predict, reopen the eyes of those who read and use it. The poet’s eye is here in alliance with that of the historian and the photographer. The Ireland of this book has been waiting to be revealed, even t those who think they known it. Alphabetically are-ranged and lavishly illustrated, this book has done for Ireland something which has never been done before in just this way. For the resident at much as for the visitor, this book shows an aspect of Ireland both to herself and to the world.
