  • By Joolz on 24 January 2012

    The author states his intention of wishing to open up the study of the round towers as they are "not marginalia in the history of Ireland; they (are) a central part of the story". As once you have seen them, the round towers are never forgotten, there must be something in this. With only two previous modern monographic books on them (Lalor, 1999, and Barrow's wonderful 1979 study) and two booklets (one by Stalley and one by Barrow), there is a need for this from a scholar of Irish Romanesque architecture, and room for much more as well. The author, although an academic, approaches the subject with an engagingly chatty style, but communicates something of the strangeness and intangibility of these towers.
