From the establishment of monasteries and the spread of religious orders, through to the Reformation, rebellions and the persecution of martyrs, the new book The Diocese of Kilmore offers a fascinating history of the rural Northwest of Ireland over seven centuries.
Kilmore diocese’s considerable size and unusual boundaries make it unique – stretching from Kilmainhamwood in Meath to Tullaghan on Leitrim’s Atlantic coastline and incorporating virtually all of Cavan, half of Leitrim and portions of Fermanagh, Meath and Sligo.
In this comprehensively researched book, Fr Liam Kelly – a priest of the diocese and a keen historian – offers an in-depth look at the history of the Church and how it shaped the culture and communities of the Northwest.
