The Harvard Irish Survey

In 1940 the publishers of this seminal work on Clare topics asked An Taoiseach,
Mr de Valera, to preface the volume. He did not appreciate some erotic details contained
in the proposed book, and declined the request.
A recent issue of History Ireland has an article about the incident.
