1814 Statistical Account
No. IX. Parish of CLONMANY,
(Diocese of Derry, and County of Donegal.)
By the Rev. F. L. Molloy.
The majority of every nation under the sun, must, of necessity, consist of the poor, and if their situation is meliorated, no doubt the minority will receive benefit from the improvement. In furtherance of this datum,it behoves every one to lend his aid: however, in the present instance, I must beg leave to decline offering any agricultural improvements, having read very few books of the theory myself; and understanding very little of the practice of agriculture; but, with all humility, I would refer my reader to the improvements suggested in Dr. Ledwich's Account of Achadhbho.
