Power: The Riches of Clare
section deals with the symbols of power to be found in the county. In
Clare these range from the dramatic Mooghaun hillfort to the numerous
castles and towerhouses in the county. Land is one of the most potent
sources of power and here the major influences of control over the land
are examined. The influence of the O'Briens, and the emergence of Eamon de Valera as a political
figure is also dealt with here.
