John Hussey is a historical-geography. His studies focus on human settlement and industry in north-west County Wicklow - the area extending from Blessington into the upper Liffey valley and the Kings River valley.


He has researched and written on the region's Granite Quarrying Industry, its Weaving Industry and its Quaker community.


His most recent research has focused on the Woolpack Road, along which the region's wool and cloth was transported to Dublin, and on winter Transhumance between west Wicklow and Kildare.


His book on the Quaker community of Baltyboys was published by the Irish Society of Friends (Quakers) in July 2017.



Comments and feedback

I welcome your comments and feedback, but please note that the focus of my research is historical geography and industrial history.  I do not research genealogy or family history.  I have no resources to respond to queries on genealogy.
