ART AND ARCHITECTURE OF IRELAND is an authoritative and fully illustrated survey that encompasses the period from the early Middle Ages to the end of the 20th century.

This monumental project provides new insights into every facet of the strength, depth and variety of Ireland’s artistic and architectural heritage.
