In the preface to the present volume Otway relates that this is a continuation of his ‘Tour in Connaught’, and “a fulfilment of an engagement to my publishers to supply them with a description of Erris.” He tells us that he received a lot of information from various people including Archdeacon Verschoyle, Lieutenant Henri who as commander of the coast-guard station resided in Erris for nineteen years and also from George Crampton, agent to Mr. Carter, one of the great landed proprietors of Erris. He also refers to William H Maxwell’s ‘Wild Sports of the West,’ and Mr. Knight for his wonderful work on the history of Erris.
