Ballybunion: An Illustrated History traces the history of the area from the arrival of the ancient shore dwellers along its coastline from 4000 BC through the Bronze, Iron Age, and Early Christian settlements. The book takes the reader on a journey through the dawn of the medieval period, through the stories of fierce faction fights, and the ghost ships which sailed the Shannon. In the book, the author relates the story of the piper Thomas McCarthy who lived through three centuries until his death in 1904; the history of Ballybunion Golf Club since 1893; and the arrival and development of the Lartigue Mono Rail System in 1888. The book also traces the first wireless transmission east to west from the Marconi Radio Station in Ballybunion in 1919 with images of the artifacts which remain to this day. This is an invaluable record of the heritage of Ballybunion.
