The Spirit of Rural Ireland by Christopher Somerville
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The magical atmosphere of Ireland has long drawn visitors in search of something special. This spirit is beautifully captured by Christopher Somerville in a unique and evocative personal account of one traveller's experiences. The full breadth of Ireland's history, mythology, society, art and culture is explored through a series of charming cameos as the writer's travels take him on foot from the Glens of Antrim in Ulster to the rugged coastline of Galway, encountering many extraordinary characters and places en route. The compelling text is enhanced throughout by a breathtaking array of specially-commissioned colour photographs that bring to life the rich appeal of this enchanting land, both north and south.
