To begin with I think some apology is due for this paper. The
apology is due, not so much on account of the subject, but because of
the manner in which it has been treated. When I took the matter in
hand, I experienced a good deal of difficulty, mainly in deciding with
which, of the great mass of interesting phenomena relating to the area,
I should deal. Another difficulty arose owing to the fact that conditions
differ so much from place to place; opinions, even of people living
in the same townland, differ so widely, that I found it hard to come
to any definite conclusions on many points.
I have tried, in such matters as I have selected for the paper, to treat
Connemara as a whole, as a unit. Hence, I have had, as a rule, to
content myself with averages.
