Ireland - The Land of Heart's Desire, Elisabetaa Canoro
1 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
2 Eric Newby Round Ireland In Low Gear
Picador 230319 Great Britain 1988 0330304909 / 9780330304900 Softcover Good Condition 'You've had some pretty crazy ideas in your life, Newby, but this is the craziest.' Grandmother Wanda Newby was exasperated after continuous rain, snow, and gales that knocked from her bike. Twice. To avoid other tourists, Eric Newby had decided that the depths of winter would be the very best time to explore Ireland by mountain bike. More astonishing still, he managed to persuade Wanda, his long-suffering wife and life-long co-traveller, to accompany him - mainly, she admitted, to 'keep him out of trouble'. Lashed by winter storms, fuelled by Guinness and warmed by thermal underwear, their panniers laden with antique books on Ireland, the elderly adventurers cycle the highways and byways, encountering hospitable locals, swaying saints and ferocious dogs. From the shores of Donegal to the holy mountains, Newby guides the reader on a tale of mishap and magic, all in his own peculiar style of humour and charm, relishing his never-ending curiosity of the world and his insatiable quest for adventure. Light moisture mark to bottom edges of first few pages. 308 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Travel; Countries::Ireland. ISBN: 0330304909.

Castles, Follies & Four-Leaf Clovers - Adventures Along Ireland's St Declan's Way, Rosamund Burton
4 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.
