In 1909-11 Robert Lloyd Praeger brought a team of 100 scientific specialists from all over Europe to map the flora, fauna, geology and archaeology of Clare Island, a small, exposed Atlantic island off the west coast. The gathering led to the publication of the path-breaking 'Clare Island Survey'. A century later the survey was repeated as the 'New Survey of Clare Island' (1992-2009) and both works were published extensively by the Royal Irish Academy. This fourth volume in the series is devoted to the Abbey on Clare Island - a national monument in State care - which has retained much of its medieval wall paintings. It documents the images, illustrates them in colour and places them in the context of late medieval Irish art.
