More Historic Websites for the Athenry Historian by Ronan Killeen

On the http://www.athenry.net/ website I came across this link which was very well designed by Mr. Brian Quinn. Enjoy folks. If you like Athenry's local history you will love this http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF8&source=embed&oe=UTF8&msa=0&msid=105407764576914012779.000480a6758209aeb1671.

Also for the local historian you can find several things on this website instead of going to a county library http://www.irishnewsarchive.com/Default/Skins/SEARCH/Client.asp?Skin=SEARCH&enter=true&AW=1321962249803&AppName=2.

Also the Landed Estates in Athenry through the National University of Ireland. Unfortunetly it won't open for me properly but it might for some open Shawe-Taylor: Landed Estate http://www.google.co.uk/search?sourceid=navclient&aq=0h&oq=nuig+&ie=UTF-8&rlz=1T4ADSA_enIE399IE400&q=nuig+shawe-taylor+landed+estate
