Description

Liam Price is well known as a scholar of early Irish history and antiquities and is probably best known for his work on the place names of County Wicklow. He served as a district justice in County Wicklow from the 1920s until the 1950s. On his way to and from the local courts he often made detours to many areas of the county, recording the antiquities, place names and folklore as he went along—information that he would eventually use in publishing many seminal papers on archaeological and historical themes related to Wicklow. He recorded his observations in a collection of notebooks, currently housed in the archives of the National Monuments and Architectural Protection Division of Dúchas The Heritage Service. These notebooks, which are published here for the first time, contain a great deal of information about little-known archaeological sites that have since disappeared from the landscape.
