Sinopsis:

This collection of writings by author Cathal Liam melds a rich stew of imaginative stories, political commentary and original poems. His affirmations and remembrances portray a changing Ireland in the twentieth century. From the bookend events of the 1916 Easter Rebellion to the 1998 Good Friday Peace Accord, Ireland's people, politics and culture have been in flux. Incontrovertibly Irish in tone and intent, this book recalls an Ireland of yesterday while critically probing the political machinations of today.

From the Publisher:

As you will soon discover, Irish history and politics are central themes running throughout this narrative. Their timelessness, often filled with a sense of frustration and despair, are counterbalanced by a newness, full of hope, for a better tomorrow. The Good Friday Agreement offers such a chance...an opportunity for peace, justice and a unity unknown in Ireland for a thousand years. The Belfast Accord's economic impact can only be positive when you consider the potential of an Irish people, working together, for the common good. There is still a long row to hoe, but just reflect on how far Ireland has come in the last one hundred years.

Several of the pieces fit into the mould of travel narratives. They tend to be more 'off-the-beaten-track' anecdotes not found on your typical 'see-Ireland-in-a-day' tour. As you might already know or can easily imagine, Ireland is full of wonderful unexpected nooks and crannies in addition to all its well publicised tourist temptations. Whether you are wandering through an old graveyard looking for the headstone of a long lost ancestor or enjoying a leisurely pony-and-trap excursion on Inishmore, Ireland is much more than just a Dublin pub crawl. Whether you have only a long weekend or the rest of your life, take time to taste and drink in the essence that is the Emerald Isle.

Irish-American Artist Edmund Sullivan writes the introduction while one of his wonderful paintings graces the book's cover. Edmund calls the west of Ireland his artistic home. For over twenty-five years, his masterful paintings depicting Irish rural scenes continually add to his much acclaimed international reputation.
