A Stroll Through Castlebar.

It is a fantastic book, it serves as both a companion to anyone who may wish to do a walking tour of the town, but it is also a great book to read at one's leisure, noting interesting facts about the town that you may have not known. For those who have moved abroad, this book will bring back memories of the county town with its lovely photographs and detailed descriptions.

It is a pocket sized book that is easy to fit into one's pocket and contains wonderful photography by local photographer, Michael Donnelly. Also, an interesting feature of the book are it QR Codes dotted throughout the publication.
