'Aghowle: Where the Divil Ate the Tinker - The History of a Wicklow Townland and its Farming Community' tells the story of the families who farmed in Aghowle - the townland which lies about 4 miles west of Ashford, on the slopes of Carrick Mountain.
The author uses historical documents and recorded memories to tell the history of the townland and surrounding areas over 4 centuries, beginning in the 17th century, right up to the early 1970s. The 10 houses in Aghowle that were still occupied in 1901 are presented in detail.
