Patrick Lavin's latest book is entitled Celtic Ireland West of the River Shannon / A Look Back at the Rich Heritage and Dynastic Structure of the Gaelic Clans.
A press release describes it as "a concise yet insightful survey of Celtic history, focusing on the origin, genealogy, and expansion of western Ireland's leading clans and tributary septs."
Among the tribal communities on which he focuses are the O'Hanlys, MacBrennans, and O'Beirnes. He presents them as "microcosms of what Gaelic tribal life throughout the Middle Ages was like."
Patrick is a native of Roscommon who now lives in Arizona and he has written several other books. His Lavin history is posted elsewhere on this site.
The new book (ISBN 0-595-26477-8)is available from Amazon, Barnes and Noble, iUniverse Inc., etc. It is 196 pages, a paperback.
Enjoy. And congratulations and thanks to Patrick.
