This first volume of a two volume set, contains information on over two hundred County Sligo houses, large and medium sized, dating form the 17th century to 1900, a number of which have been demolished or are presently lying vacant.
The selection is based on a combination of architectural merits and historical associations, high – lighting the principal families who owned or occupied them down to the present day. There is also an historical sketch of house building in the county for the period covered together with detailed listings of the principal houses at different periods.
Identifying the various families associated with the individual houses should prove a valuable source of reference for both genealogists and local historians
