Bantry Publishing is proud to release a reprint of Hugh Joseph MacDonald's 1992 book, The Lonely Hills of Bantry. This small volume outlines the story of the small settlement established by Irish immigrants near present-day Salmon River Lake during the first three decades of the 19th century. The book includes a section on the "Great Eastern Road" along which the immigrants initially established their homes, a description of the work of Rev. James Grant—the area's first Roman... Catholic priest—in promoting its development, and a two-page map displaying the initial land grants. Later chapters trace the settlement's development and demise, and include profiles of Thomas O'Neill—one of Bantry's more prominent residents and a church builder of some renown—and William Malloy's 1930s logging operation in the area. Available in soft cover paperback with staple binding, 71 pages, and electronic (PDF) format at http://bantrypublishing.ca . Click on the "Store" link to order a copy.
