This second volume of a two volume set entitled ” Sligo Families”, chronicles the fortunes of over sixty families and is extensively illustrated with hithertofore unpublished portraits.
The families featured include a number of well – known landed families whose members, over succeeding generations, played a pivotal role in the affairs of the county.
A number of lesser known families, who have either died out or whose descendants have moved elsewhere, are also featured as are a good mix of other families whose members achieved prominence in different fields of human endeavour at home and abroad over the centuries as churchmen, diplomats, legal luminaries, merchant princes, medics and soldiers of fortune.
