“This is a wonderful book, full of honour, contrast and explanation … driven with translucent compassion … The author has done something more than resurrect the ghosts of the misjudged. He has projected lantern slides of a past culture, the last of Europe’s Iron Age, the cottage poor of the west of Ireland”.
– Frank Delaney, The Sunday Times.
