Stone by Stone

Stone by Stone 9781847581419

Countless generations have used stone to create shelter, symbols and monuments, hewn from the ground, carefully selected, shaped and carved with an evolved understanding of geology, properties and characteristics, each stone representing a distinctive sense of place. However, over the last century we have lost much of that instinctive understanding of how best to use natural stone. As a result our rich masonry heritage has not been cared for as well as it deserves and local resources have been ignored in favour of imported stone.

This book is based on the experience of academic research, practical testing and live restoration projects and is intended to disseminate good practice and lessons learnt over the last 15 years.

"A practical and accessible guide for anyone interested in using or repairing natural stone in buildings and monuments".


Keep Her Flying - Ireland's Rally Heroes

Appletree Press is proud to announce the publication of Keep Her Flying - Ireland's Rally Heroes, written by Richard Young.

Keep Her Flying - Ireland's Rally Heroes

Rallying is the most popular Motorsport in Ireland. It is easy to see why it appeals to ‘Petrolheads’. What’s not to like? It is an infectious blend of modified rally cars, mud, speed, mud, fearless drivers, mud, spotlights and did we mention the mud? Special Stage Rallies take place on the open road, together with other special closed stages which, as the name might suggest are roads which are not open to the public. Drivers generally win or lose races based on their speeds over the closed stages. This celebration of rallying looks at the history of the sport in Ireland, and tells the stories of the big names including Eugene Donnelly, Gareth McHale, Kris Meeke, Colm Murphy and Kevin Lynch and many more. Photographs throughout.

John McNally - Boxing's Forgotten Hero

John McNally - Boxing's Forgotten Hero

Recently published by Appletree Press, John McNally - Boxing's Forgotten Hero is written by Barry Flynn.

Ireland has always been famous for her glovemen – men who pitted logic, strength and stamina against men of other nations on the world’s canvas stage. Some even became Olympic medal winners. John McNally was just one of these fighters but unlike the many who followed in his footsteps to find fame and fortune his name is now largely forgotten except to the real boxing aficionado.

      John McNally won silver in the Olympic Games held in Helsinki in 1952 – a remarkable achievement for any man – but he was also the first Irishman to win an Olympic medal for boxing. Many believe that the medal he should have been awarded was gold and the phrase ‘we was robbed’ could have been coined with John in mind. This is the story of a boxer who fought against overwhelming odds to escape the mean streets of Belfast to reach the heights of his sport.

      "John McNally made Irish sporting history by becoming the first Irish boxer to win an Olympic medal of any colour. He was a hero. It is right to cherish sporting heroes, and this book does just that."

Liam Nolan
