Sligo Independent newspaper, County Directory, Almanac and Guide (1889)

What is inside?

This is an incredibly rare book, and one of the only county directories to ever be published for the west of Ireland. It contains a full list of county officials, magistrates of the county and borough of Sligo, public and private institutions, trades directory, general directory of the borough, and a directory of the principal towns throughout the county, as well as a lot of other useful information, such as a calendar of fairs, tides, postal services, etc. There is a full street and business directory for Sligo borough, following which there are details for each town, including churches, schools, police, banks, schools, and a full trades directory. This booklet was distributed free to subscribers of the Sligo Independent newspaper, and is lavishly filled with illustrated advertisements. As a consequence we have published this title in full colour.
