I met Uncle Mick one time in my life. He was my grandfather, Timothy Kirby's brother. To me, this lovely and evocative book is also a family history and a wonderful legacy to pass along to my son who has been working on a family tree. I would have loved it anyway. The funny and loving tribute to a people impoverished and beset by history who "danced with fairies" and possessed wealth beyond measure.

If you want to know about the real recent past in rural/farming/fishing Ireland this book is for you! Stories abound about this difficult time to survive - they had to use their wits! Enjoy a real trip into the West Coast area of Ireland!
