Mayo has a wonderful collection of religious monuments dotted throughout the county, and notably on its offshore islands. A selection of these monuments created during the thousand years from 600 to 1600 AD are presented in a publication entitled Medieval Mayo - Churches and Abbeys. These monuments tell the story of those who inhabited them and demonstrate the skill and wonderful craftsmanship of those who constructed and decorated them. Written by Dr Peter Harbison and accompanied by wonderful illustrations and photographs, this fascinating and engaging volume, brings the reader on a journey of discovery through a millennium of religious tradition and pilgrimage activity in Mayo.
