Books about Cavan
  • Drumkilly: From Ardkill Mountain to Kilderry Hill. Edited by Tom Sullivan, Drumkilly History Committee, 2000.
  • Knockbride - A History. E. Markey and J. Clarke, 1990s.

Both books are excellent local histories but do not give an overall story of the county. A local history of Arvagh has been written but I have not read it. The books can be ordered by writing to Crannog Bookshop, Unit 1, Newcourt Shopping Centre, Church Street, Cavan, Co. Cavan, phone/fax 049-433-2861. They do not have a web page, nor e-mail.
