Description

The Fall of the Fitzmaurices by Listowel native Kay Caball tells the story of the demise of the Fitzmaurice family, who had been powerful Lords of Kerry, since the year 1235. Nevertheless, by 1818 after over five hundred years as Kerry’s premier family, through a combination of extravagance, irresponsibility, and reckless living, their titles and estates were no more. This is a potent story of power, wealth, land, money, and sex among the Irish aristocracy in the 18th century.
