From Library Journal:

The continuing annals of County Clare. The first volume ( O Come Ye Back to Ireland, LJ 10/15/87) chronicled a young couple's flight from Manhattan skyscraper to Irish cottage; the second ( When Summer's in the Meadow, 2/15/89) added baby Deirdre; and this latest installment tells of forays with child across the Emerald Isle. The authors are superb surrogates for armchair tourists amused by an Ireland that is unfailingly charming in an invariably preindustrial sort of way. The latest is irresistible for the now identifiable Williams/Breen prose dialog recounting travel through familiar places (Dublin, Kerry, etc.) in a familiar manner (bed-and-breakfast). More volumes will no doubt follow: a true cottage industry.--John P. Harrington, The Cooper Union, New York correction: Our review of Richard Laermer's Native's Guide to New York (LJ 12/89), published by Prima and distributed by St. Martin's, incorrectly stated that the book lacked information on street fairs, crafts fairs, and festivals. In fact, there is a chapter on "Best Festivals" and another on "Auctions, Shows, and Fairs." We apolo gize for the error.

From Publishers Weekly:

The Irish-American authors of O Come Ye Back to Ireland , a beguiling account of their first year transplanted to rural County Clare, testify here to their abiding "love of place." Accompanied by their adopted daughter, Deirdre, they take off from their base at Kiltumper Cottage to explore parts of Ireland lying to the west. They revisit favorite idylls, as well as popular attractions such as the Kerry Puck Fair, but the heart of their jaunting is in the remote islands, lonely seacoasts and primeval beaches that they delightedly come upon in Ulster. In alternating chapters, the authors share their joy in Ireland's largely unspoiled natural beauty with a pleasing "Irish feeling." First serial to Travel Holiday magazine.
