The People who made the history of Dunmore Parish over thousands of years are the central figures in this story. I am delighted and honoured to be given the opportunity to record this history of our people.

The story is written in diary form and i tried to portray what was happening in the Conmaicne Cinéal Dubháin/Comaicne Dúna Mór/ the Barony of Dunmore over the last 6000 years.

There is a connecting link in many if the topics over the years. I hope that the story will create a deeper realization and appreciation of the history of Dunmore, and the importance of Dunmore in the overall history of Galway and the country.
