Local history of Larne, Glenarm, Carnlough by Felix McKillop

Hi Liam,

I am happy if you to reveal my e-mail address on your site for those who
want to contact me regarding my books. I will post books to anywhere in the
world once I ascertain the postage charges.

The main books I have written that would interest local history enthusiasts are:

'Glenarm, a local history' (1987) Looks at the history of the first of the
Nine Glens of Antrim from earliest settlement to the year of publication.
It highlights many individuals over the centuries who lived in this area.

'Glencloy, a local history - including Carnlough' (1996) Looks at the second
of the Nine Glens of Antrim from earliest settlement to the year of
publication. It also highlights many individuals over the centuries who
lived in this Glen.

'History of Larne and East Antrim' (2000) Looks at the history of Larne and
its hinterland from the earliest settlers to the millennium year. Includes
many individuals and family names.

'Townlands, People and Traditions' (2006) This is a history of townlands in
the Glenarm/Cairncastle areas and the families who lived in each. Those
interested in genealogical information will find much of interest here.

Liam, thank you for your support.

Best wishes,

Felix

"GLENARM, A Local History" by Felix McKillop

Post by irishgen » 20 Sep 2007, 21:43

Glenarm claims to be the oldest town in Ulster having been granted a charter in the 12th Century.

"GLENARM, A Local History" by Felix McKillop chronicles life in this charming coastal village from its documented beginnings in the stone age to its links with St Patrick, settlement by the Vikings, Normans, Scots and British, right up to the Famine Years, the industrial era and the great wars. While the pages are highlighted by fascinating Victorian photographs; archival prints and detailed townland maps, the main focus is the past 150 years with the author giving voice to dozens of pioneer families and their memories of "the good old days". This well-researched reference book is not only an entertaining read, but also an invaluable source of information for armchair historians and people tracing their ancestral roots in this region.
