Ballynacarrigy, Sonna & Emper- History, Heritage & Community By Peter Wallace


The Ballynacarrigy, Sonna and Emper triangle encompasses one of the most historic and beautiful areas in the Midlands and this publication traces the history of the area from earliest times up to the present era.
Major themes such as archaeology, the coming of Christianity, the Normans, the Big House, the Great Famine, sport music and folklore are all described and analysed. The many interesting illustrations add considerably to the appeal of this important and detailed history of a hitherto neglected Westmeath community.
Peter Wallace is a well known local historian and he has been actively involved in the Westmeath Archaeological and Historical Society for many years.
