I enjoyed looking at this as my grandfather was Irish and lived in Maesteg. His name is listed in the Irish addresses in 1900s. My mother's cousin has a page for his rugby league career and his father has a page about his experiences in World War 1 as a prisoner being interviewed by Roger Casement. For these reasons I was very interested in the book which is an important local history archive.
