HEAVY VOLUME - additional postage will be requested at processing stage for shipping outside of Ireland. Slight rubbing to dust-jacket - otherwise fiine. 'This book attempts to record some of the many facets of life on , in, or related to the Slobs and Harbour, from Ferrycarrig Bridge in the north, to Rosslare Pier in the south. It is an anthology - a collection from many sources. Some of the chapters are taken from existing material, some written specially for the book, and some derived from interviews and discussions. It is compiled primarily for the "layman" . the person who loves Wexford, the sea, the Slobs, the birds, and would like to know a bit more about it all. But parts of it are likely to be of value to the specialist too - particularly those parts which record the birds, the mammals, the invertebrates and the flora of the area.'.
