Preface to the second edition:
Since The Sunny Side of Ireland was issued the Royal Assent has been given to an Act of Parliament which makes the Great Southern and Western Railway foremost in every sense amongst Irish Railways. The two Provinces of Munster and Connaught are now knit together by a huge network of railway lines comprised in their amalgamated system. The several counties thus included are dealt with in this Second Edition. The volume is further enhanced by more particular information as to the sports and pastimes of the country, and by a valuable chapter on the Natural History of the South and West of Ireland, by writers of authority on such subjects.
Early edition, no date. Circa 1900. Green hardcover in near fine condition. Decoratively stamped with dark green shamrocks and vines. Dark green titles. Seven maps and 130 illustrations from photographs in black and white. One beautiful color map of the Killarney District. Pages bright. This is a beautiful, rare and second hand book.
