Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Ballinaclash is a village in east County Wicklow centred on a bridge that carries the R753 regional road across the River Avonbeg. The village is mentioned in J.M. Synge's play 'The Tinker's Wedding' "And a big fool I was too, maybe; but we'll be seeing Jaunting Jim to-morrow in Ballinaclash, and he after getting a great price for his white foal in the horse-fair of Wicklow." In 1837, the village had a population of 3855 according to Samuel Lewis' 'A Topographical Dictionary of Ireland'. This population was decimated by the famine and subsequent emigration and today is only a fraction of that number.show more
