“Footprints over Moira” is a small book of Historical stories from 1000 years of life in Moira.
For the past few years I have researched and recorded the history of this village and had some opportunities to share this in public meetings and in the local primary school. Some friends suggested I should put it in print but I thought most people would find history books boring. However, as I learned more of Moira through the ages, I found stories jumping off the dusty pages and I wanted to tell those stories. That is where this little book was born. Footprints over Moira is a book of short stories, either relating to real historical characters or using imaginary characters to tell real historical stories. All of them are placed in or close to Moira. Most stories are written in chronological order but each one stands alone, allowing stories to be read individually. Every care has been taken to ensure the stories are as historically accurate as possible.
Each story in the book ends with several relevant Bible verses. Hopefully it’s local interest, its attractive production with images and illustrations and its easy to read format will ensure it is read and retained for years to come.
The book is now available on Kindle http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B0053TCGIM (Please be aware that the formatting process for Kindle will not produce an exact copy of the print version, so there may be minor errors)

A new history of Moira is nearing completing and hopefully will be published in the summer of 2017. I am however anxious to ensure that everything is correct and that all sources are checked. I seem to learn something new every week. Meanwhile I include selected segments from the book in articles on this site. Thank you for your patience.
