The Book of Roads is a work of historical and engineering literature that was written during the early nineteenth century.
It is notable for being the first book in a series of books written by John Hodgan, the forerunner of the Hodan family.
In 1884, John Hodgen was commissioned to construct the Great Bridge across the River Shannon.
It was completed in 1891 and the Hodans name was inscribed on the stone at the site.
The Hodancans were prominent members of the Ulster Volunteer Force and served in the British Army during the First World War.
They were also influential members of parliament during the 1920s and 1930s.
They became the owners of the Irish Water Bridge, a waterway that ran along the Shannon.
They died in 1926 and their estate was later acquired by the Department of Tourism and Sport.
They passed away in 2005 and are buried in St. James’s Cemetery.
The book was published in 2009 and is available in paperback and ebook formats.
