"The charm of Ireland's country house is a magnificent heritage. Like State buildings, the architecture and atmosphere of the country house is admired in such a way that, while they are private dwellings and should always be respected for that fact, they attract public admirers who assume a sense of platonic ownership. This book is the product of twelve years of intensive research. It tells the story of mroe than 100 of Wexford's Country Houses. The selection recorded in this volume is chosen at the discretion of the author, but it is representative of geography, size and importance." (intro) A terrific local architectural history book, and one that is scarce.
