Finding Your Family in County Sligo This illustrated, well indexed book, was created exclusively to help you find your family in County Sligo, Ireland. Focusing specifically on families within the county, it includes an introduction to research and sources in Sligo. The most numerous families from birth records are given, as well as rather rare Sligo families found in heraldic records. Included you will find a full page county map from the Atlas of Ireland, along with a listing of modern parishes and old townlands, along with the address and location of records for more research. Published by the Irish Genealogical Foundation, this book was originally made for members researching in Sligo. What this book does This work includes copies of actual records (some worn, torn and faded), from the IGF Library. It also includes rough sketches of family coats of arms and notes from centuries past - seldom found elsewhere. The resources provided here will help research any family in the county, including old Irish families, and settler families from England, Scotland, Wales and the continent. This book is a hands on guide for finding your family in Sligo- some family history is included - but it is not a gigantic collection of family histories . (For that see 'The Book of Irish Families, great & small', the first book in the Irish Families series by O'Laughlin.) The Irish Families Project for Sligo The Master book to the 29 volume Irish Families series is 'The Book of Irish Families, great & small'. That book gives hundreds of family histories from County Sligo, and the surrounding areas. " County Sligo Genealogy and Family History Notes", volume 24 in the series, expands upon that coverage with added families and new resources just for Sligo. (In this way both books can work together as a set if desired, or they may be used independently for research.)

The Irish legend tells the tale of a young prince and his beautiful mermaid bride. Taken from the sea, the mermaid agrees to marry the prince and together they raise seven fair children. But eventually the day comes when the mermaid must return to the sea. Will the prince lose his family forever?
Tales from Sligo and the West encompasses both historic and contemporary views of the magical and mystical nature of this region. The literary tradition in this area is as ancient as any on earth, dating back thousands of years, originating in the oral traditions of the Irish Celts, Druids, Poets, and Bards.These traditions were carried forth by the early Christian monks who incorporated and preserved the Celtic/Gaelic stories and artwork into their outstanding illuminated manuscripts, now realized as the oldest and most beautiful ever produced, many of which are now housed in the great library of Trinity College Dublin.The highly inspirational history of this small island has produced many of the world's greatest authors, including Jonathan Swift, Edmund Burke, Oliver Goldsmith, Oscar Wilde, James Joyce, Bram Stoker, Sean O'Casey, C. S. Lewis, Kate O'Brien, Lady Augusta Gregory, Patrick Kavanagh, Brian Friel, Dermot Healy, Willie Joe Meally; and, includes four Nobel Laureates, William Butler Yeats, George Bernard Shaw, Samuel Beckett, and Seamus Heaney.Tales from Sligo and the West is the next progression of this extraordinary tradition.
"Using a wide array of sources and interviews, Michael Farry has produced a balanced, comprehensive and absorbing study of county Sligo from 1912 when the Irish Party controlled all political affairs to 1922-3 when the county saw considerable action during the civil war. This wide-ranging study offers fascinating new insights into the Irish Revolution and details how the county moved from being one of the most loyal to the Irish Party to one of the best-organised Sinn Fâein counties. Farry is especially good on how both organised unionism and the strong labour movement in Sligo reacted to the rise of Sinn Fâein, its election victory in 1918 and the subsequent Truce, Treaty and civil war. His use of the recently released BMH accounts as well as British military sources results in a richly detailed examination of the IRA campaign and the British reaction. It examines the superior attitude of the IRA towards 'mere politicians' during the Truce period and explains why Sligo saw so much conflict during the civil war. This book is the first volume to appear in The Irish Revolution, 1912-23 Series (Mary Ann Lyons & Daithâi âO Corrâain, series editors). This major new series explores the experience of the Irish Revolution, addressing key developments and issues in the period. The approach will be both thematic and chronological, and the series will bring to a wide readership the findings of a new generation of historians with concise, accessible, scholarly studies of the Irish Revolution at a county level. Each volume will take 1912 as its starting point, opening with an overview of the social, economic and political milieu, and the local experience of the War of Independence will be treated in detail. Responses to the Truce of 1921, the Anglo-Irish Treaty, and partition will also be considered. Each volume will close with an acute examination of the Irish civil war and its local impact."--Publisher's website.
Harry Canham, an ex-British SIS case officer, is called upon by his old service to infiltrate The Real IRA. His brief is to prevent an attempt on the life of a member of the British Royal family, by an assassin known only as the Sligo Piper.
From the journals and memoirs of Catherine Theresa Cullen, mother of the poet, Susan L. Mitchell. In this work we glimpse the "close-knit life of Protestant Ireland, a society absorbed in its own triumphs and misfortunes, in its religion and fashions, and yet conscious that at that moment history was being made." --Back cover.
