James Pethica (To the Land of the Free from this Island of Slaves) sent me an e-mail the other day recommending a new book that addresses more of the Persse family history. The book "The Fields of Athenry" by James Charles Roy, the other editor of "From this Island..." weaves his personnel experience in purchasing and renovating Moyode Castle into a history of the area around the castle. I ran out to Borders today at lunch and picked up a copy so I've only read a few pages but, based on quickly skimming through several chapters, I would strongly recommend it to anyone interested in Persse family history. On a slightly different note, does anyone know of any pictures of Lady Gregory's brothers and sisters? James Pethica is working on another book and is interested in obtaining copies of the pictures.
