book.jpg (15405 bytes)The Lamberts of Athenry is a book on the Lambert Families of Castle Lambert and Castle Ellen, Co. Galway. A study of the townlands associated with them and their Edward Carson / Oscar Wilde Connection.

It was published to commemorate the first Lambert Symposium which was held in Athenry during June 1999. It was produced by pupils of The Carnaun School under the supervision of editor Finbarr O'Regan.

Containing some forty chapters, comprising over 250 pages. The book is of great interest to anyone trying to understand the complex history of Ireland. For members of the Lambert family, it is an invaluable source of information. No home should be without at least one copy.  


I am sorry to say the Book is now out of print and is only available second hand if you hunt for it (5-1 2008) this website does get offered them from time to time and so if you want to go on the waiting list, email me and I will let you know when and if one comes up

entombed in what once was the grounds of Castle Lambert and Moor Park
