The book collection consists of over 300 volumes, principally relating to the history, heritage and topography of Connemara and the Burren. The archival collection includes literary manuscripts from the preparation of Tim's well known works as well as detailed research materials. The latter includes index cards used by Tim in the creation of his gazetteer and map of Connemara published in 1990. 


The book collection is particularly focussed on Connemara, the Burren and the Aran Islands. The archive includes literary manuscripts of Tim's work as well as meticulous research for his cartographic enterprises.
