Many people are interested in the history of Omey Island.  The attached essay represents the most complete history of humans on Omey Island that we have been able to assemble. Just click on the link below to download a copy (web quality).

NOTE:  (11th March) I'm currently working on an expanded/improved version of the file below, in order to produce a draft e-book in about 12 chapters and three main Parts:  geology, human history and ecological issues. The References will have been tidied up, and many more changes made. I'll post on Facebook when the more final version is 'up' on this page (I had hoped to complete by end February but got delayed - the target now is to publish the completed manuscript as a free-of-charge e-book).
