The Transformation of Ireland 1900-2000, Diarmaid Ferriter
1 Diarmaid Ferriter The Transformation of Ireland 1900-2000
Profile Books 241143 Great Britain 2005 1861974434 / 9781861974433 Softcover Good Condition A ground-breaking history of the twentieth century in Ireland, written on the most ambitious scale by a brilliant young historian. It is significant that it begins in 1900 and ends in 2000 - most accounts have begun in 1912 or 1922 and largely ignored the end of the century. Politics and political parties are examined in detail but high politics does not dominate the book, which rather sets out to answer the question: 'What was it like to grow up and live in 20th-century Ireland'? It deals with the North in a comprehensive way, focusing on the social and cultural aspects, not just the obvious political and religious divisions. 884 pages. Pages browned at edges. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: History; History; Countries::Ireland. ISBN: 1861974434. ISBN/EAN: 9781861974433. Inventory No: 241143. Paperback

Ireland - The Land of Heart's Desire, Elisabetaa Canoro
2 Elisabetaa Canoro Ireland - The Land of Heart's Desire
Gill & Macmillan 231835 Dublin 2003 First Edition 0717136906 / 9780717136902 Hardcover Near Fine Condition Near Fine Seagulls wheeling over the cliffs, white horses on the dark blue sea whipped up by the wind, and above, three hundred feet up the sheer rock face, an endless grassy expanse interrupted only by dry stone walls. Ireland is a country of time in slow motion, where tubby, long-maned ponies still draw wooden carts of peat, as they have done for the last ten centuries. This is the Ireland of islands and archipelagos anchored to time-honoured traditions, of small towns and pretty fishing villages, moors and a Celtic history, poverty and dignified suffering. But it is also the island of archaeological sites, hermits shrouded in mystery, and of Dublin, the capital of the cities built on a human scale, which has expanded on a cosmopolitan path in the recent years without losing its character. Scenic photographs, portraits of men and women from every corner of the island, and scenes from everyday life in the peace of the countryside and the hurly-burly of the city: a thousand faces of Ireland have been immortalised in this book, in an itinerary that readers can follow in person, letting their imagination and emotions run free as they are swept up in the beauty of this land on the extreme edge of Europe. 295 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 2-3 kilos. Category: Countries::Ireland; Ireland; Geography & Maps; ISBN: 0717136906. ISBN/EAN: 9780717136902. Inventory No: 231835.

Round Ireland in Low Gear, Eric Newby
3 Eric Newby Round Ireland in Low Gear
Picador 240820 Great Britain 1988 0330304909 / 9780330304900 Softcover Good Condition Having decided to explore Ireland by bicycle, Eric and Wanda Newby set out one December - not the best time to ride a bike around the highways and by-ways of the Emerald Isle, even when protected by thermal underwear. From the Cliffs of Moher to St Brigid's Vat, Dublin, the Aran Islands, the Ring of Kerry and Croagh Patrick, their rainsoaked journey is beset by minor disaster ranging from ferocious storms to even more ferocious dogs. Along the way they come across a moving, miracle-working stature of the Virgin, spectacular ruins and the traces of twentieth-century violence, in between stops for Guinness, tea and soda bread. Woven into the narrative is a wealth of information about Irish history and custom - hermits, horse-fairs, peat-cutting and poetry are all touched on in this deft and dazzling blend of myth, fact and quirky details. And, as usual with eric Newby, this beguiling account is enlivened by a cast of eccentric and utterly engaging characters. 308 pages. Tanning to pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Travel; Theatre & Plays; Countries::Ireland. ISBN: 0330304909. ISBN/EAN: 9780330304900. Inventory No: 240820. Paperback

Castles, Follies & Four-Leaf Clovers - Adventures Along Ireland's St Declan's Way, Rosamund Burton
6 Rosamund Burton Castles, Follies & Four-Leaf Clovers - Adventures Along Ireland's St Declan's Way
Allen & Unwin 231566 Australia 2011 1741759528 / 9781741759525 Softcover Very Good Condition The fascinating and funny story of one woman's delightful ramble along St. Declan's Way-the Camino de Santiago of Ireland-battling the mist and the rain, with just an old photocopy of a map to guide her Rosamund's adventures begin when she is loaned a map of the ancient highway and pilgrim route St Declan's Way-one of Ireland's best kept secrets, it is rich in history, castles, and larger-than-life characters. Intrigued, she returns to Ireland. Setting off from the famous Rock of Cashel in County Tipperary, she travels through small towns and villages, across the beautiful Knockmealdown Mountains, to the town of Lismore with its spectacular castle where her family used to live, and then on to the fishing village of Ardmore in County Waterford. Battling the rain as she follows narrow country roads, little-used tracks, and overgrown paths, she traces the footsteps of St. Declan. From a day at a horse fair to climbing mountains and tracking down fairy forts, she captures perfectly the local characters and castles, miraculous wells and talking statues, the broken dreams and local legends. Stories of goddesses, ghosts, and fairies are intertwined with the eccentricities and daily lives of everyday people-this is a journey full of the surprises that only Ireland can offer. 270 pages.
