Cashel to Limerick, a priceless library collection moves to UofL

‎A story of fragility, humidity and the search for people to fund the preservation of their heritage.

Photos of books as a frantic attempt to preserve a record of an endangered collection.

The visual record is stunning in that it shows what was and what is now. If only people's will and funding had preserved the books when that effort may have been most effective.

Twenty years of struggling to get this collection protected results in this priceless library moving to UofL. It is/ was a mainstay on the tourist sights for Cashel community. 

Two links here shows the extent of the work that now must be done.
