The following are a list of book titles relating to Co. Clare. The topics are varied: history, heritage, geology, language and some tourist guides. Some of these may be easily obtainable, some are rare and out of print. Some are books and some pamphlets.
You can never find a book if you do not have a title to work with, once you have a title then you can search through on-line library catalogues or make an enquiry of your local library as to whether they partake in inter-library loan and if they can obtain a copy of a book for you from some other library. You can watch the item lists of auction houses, or those on inter-net auction sites. You can also contact book-sellers to find if they have a copy of the book should you be interested in purchasing it.
This list is arranged alphabetically by author. For the most part the publisher and year of publication are also included. You can use your browser to search for a particular word or you can read through the list. It is hoped to add to this list of books from time to time.
For these entries the highlighted name is usually the author, then, the name of the book. Followed by the place of publication and sometimes the publisher, then the year of publication.
