Five Connemara short stories by five men from Connemara. But this is not the Connemara of the John Hinde postcards, of lofty mountains, sandy beaches, deep-blue lakes, of red-haired children on bogs.
This is a place of grinding poverty, of relentless hardship, of tragic personal loss, of dreams made and lost, a Connemara of isolation and loneliness. This is Connemara as seen from the inside, powerful, gritty, down-to-earth stories of the west of Ireland in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.
This is a bilingual collection (English and Irish).
