This book is one of the first modern histories of an Irish city. It sets Kilkenny in the context not only of Irish history but also of the general European culture which helped mold that history. It tells a vital and human story of the people who settled and lived in what was the largest inland town in Ireland. A wide range of sources has been consulted in order to produce a history which covers many aspects of life, from politics, to society, economic activity and religion. The book deals with ordinary townspeople and merchants as well as important families, in particular the Ormondes. 306 pages.
