An Abbey in Shadowland: A Further History of the Village of Monkstown
The 2nd and last book on the history of the ‘Old Monkstown cemetery, Knockagh Road, Newtownabbey, Co Antrim, Northern Ireland. The first, extremely scarce book is called ‘Requiem for a village : a history of the village of Monkstown’. If you already have that book, ‘Shadowland’ completes the set and you are one of a handful of people who have both books in the series. Regardless of whether you have the first book or not, this book has plenty to keep the Newtownabbey historian busy.
This book also covers the interesting details of the ‘birth of Monkstown village’ and it’s people.
