First page of Irish Tourist Association Survey, Ballycroy, 1942
The Irish Tourist Association Survey for Ballycroy parish was completed in 1942 by M.J.B. O'Kelly. The only village in the area is Ballycroy itself, which, as the surveyor pointed out, was scarcely worthy of the name, village. The population is given as just 10. By far the most interesting section of the survey deals with the antiquities of the area. In addition to detailed descriptions of the ruined buildings and archaeological sites, sketches and photographs are also included. From a tourist point of view, the only activities of a recreational nature available in the area were fishing and shooting.
The headings for the survey are listed below. Clicking on the heading will open the relevant section in the survey.
