Praise for Ballyshannon and Surrounding Areas - History Heritage and Folklore

by Anthony Begley

Donegal Democrat: "It's the first fully researched history of the area in well over one hundred years - revealing the history of the oldest town in Ireland from earliest times and recording for the first time in a single book much of the history of Ballyshannon." Complete article here

Irish Digest: Anthony has a special interest in the townlands in Kilbarron and Magh Éne because as a young boy he travelled the countryside with his father, Patrick Begley, a local veterinary surgeon, and he realised the importance of these individual townlands and how they had contributed to the development of the town and the area. Over 50 pages are devoted to the history, heritage and folklore of the townlands and included are two specially commissioned colour maps giving the location of each townland. Complete article here
