These are the wonders of Ireland: misty pastures and ancient dolmens. The cliffs of Slieve League. Lively seaside villages. A Bloomsday tour of Dublin. Sailboats clustered in Kinsale Harbor, the Galway Races, magnificent castle gardens, witty Guinness ads, medieval abbeys fallen to ruin, the Rock of Cashel, a swan drifting along the gentle Shannon. Combining the lyrical writing of novelist Colum McCann with hundreds of gorgeous photographs by Tim Thompson, 365 Days in Ireland celebrates the windswept beauty and indomitable spirit of the Emerald Isle, and captures the thread of magic that meanders through the whole of the land.
THE ROCK OF CASHEL, FANAD HEAD, A BLOOMSDAY TOUR OF DUBLIN
Every day—every moment spent in Ireland is a seduction. The dramatic sea spray of Cork's Roaring Water Bay. The Slieve League Cliffs. Light reflecting off the River Liffey. Crumbling relics of the past—towers, abbeys, dolmens. A fiddler fiddling in the pub, the Irish Derby, Blarney Castle of myth and story, witty Guinness ads, a swan gliding down the Erne. These are the wonders of the Emerald Isle, imbued with history and memory and a deep sense of place.
Combining the lyrical writing of novelist Colum McCan with hundreds of gorgeous photographs by Tim Thompson, 365 DAYS IN IRELAND captures the essence and heart of the land—the windswept beauty, indomitable spirit, and the thread of magic that wends through it all.
