Briody-In the Service of the State Briody, Thomas. In the Service of the State. Edited by Michael Brody. County Louth, Choice Publishing, 2012. 21.4cm x 14cm. xxiv, 505 pages. Original illustrated softcover. As New. Signed by the author. [ The Memoirs of an Irish Forester. Volume 2].

At the age of 98, Thomas (Tosty) Briody, a native of south-west Cavan, is one of the oldest state foresters in Ireland. To date, Thomas Briody is the only Irish forester to pen his memoirs. The Road to Avondale, published in 2009, dealt with his childhood, early manhood and path to Forestry, as well as his early years as a state forester. In the Service of the State picks up his story from where The Road to Avondale left off and continues it up to his retirement from Forestry in 1979. During this time he worked in five forest centres in all four provinces of Ireland: Clonaslee forest (Co Laois); Mount Bellew forest (Co Galway); Castleblaney forest (Co Monaghan); Foxford forest (Co Mayo); and Carrick-on-Suir forest (counties Waterford, Tipperary and Kilkenny). As well as telling the story of one man’s struggle against the odds, the book sheds valuable insight on Irish Forestry in pre-Coillte days.
