Clare Local Studies Project

The outstanding co-operation between the library service and CLASP continues to bring great benefit to the people of Clare. CLASP was founded by four members of the library staff as an independent organisation to link up with FAS, the Training Authority, so as to increase access to and develop awareness of the rich record of the county’s proud past, while at the same time providing vital training and education for many young people. CLASP publications and exhibitions to date include Crime & Punishment in Clare; Poverty in Clare Before the Famine; Lewis’ Topographical Dictionary of Clare; Two Months at Kilkee by Mary John Knott, originally published in 1836; The Antiquities of County Clare by John O’Donovan and Eugene O’Curry; Kilrush Union Minute Books 1849; The Famine in Folklore in Clare; Sable Wings over the Land: Ennis, County Clare and its wider community during the Great Famine by Ciaran O Murchadha; A Handbook to Lisdoonvarna and its vicinity by P. D.; A Portrait of Lisdoonvarna; Bluett’s Record of Ennis and Local Study Sources for specific areas of the county.
