Book about Inishkea

French art historian Françoise Henry was one of the most important twentieth-century historians of Irish art. In 1937, she visited the island of Inishkea North in advance of excavations in search of early medieval remains. In this edited translation of Henry’s journals, readers will delight in her evocative descriptions of the environment while being entertained by her awkward attempts to understand the former islanders she employed.

The book Françoise Henry in Co Mayo; The Inishkea Journals is now available.
