Saltees: Islands of birds and legends
By Richard Roche & Oscar Merne
152 pages, Paperbound

The exciting story of two islands steeped in history, once a refuge for smugglers, pirates and rebels, inhabited by pre-historic man. Now a major bird sanctuary.

Although they are now deserted by man, the Saltee Islands have an exciting and controversial past. They are one of the world's major bird sanctuaries. This book details the islands' history from the Stone Age, through early Christian times, the Vikings and Normans, and the days when the islands were a bustling haven for pirates and smugglers. It also looks in depth at the islands' 200 species of birds - some of them rare - their breeding habits, migratory movements and general ecology.
