The Historical Timeline at the end of the book is invaluable to anyone researching any Tralee family as it places the lives of our ancestors in the context of international and local events at the same time.
Researchers with any connection to these families or the town of Tralee may also discover members of their own families mentioned. On page 261, I found a reference to my late father Michael Brennan's work in the development of the Russell Arcade in 1976.
I also found information about the Curraheen Waterworks, the development of Fenit Harbour and the expansion of the Railway in which members of my family worked. I can see myself returning to this book again and again.
