The Journeyman is a compelling tale of intrigue, danger and romance, set against the backdrop of a perilously unpredictable 18th century Ireland. Liam Flynn travels across County Tipperary, his destination the shores of Lough Derg, his objective to fulfill a lifelong dream. The perils he encounters on the road are only the beginning for this young itinerant carpenter and he soon finds himself thrust into an impossible situation when, with the help of an old Franciscan priest, he tries to save the tiny Irish village of Gortalocca. If he is discovered by the authorities, he faces almost certain execution for treason. When the villagers discover what he has done in his efforts to save them from eviction and starvation, he becomes the object of their contempt and hatred. Of course, an Irish story would not be complete without humour, and there is plenty of ‘craic’ to be had. In Hogan’s bar, you will experience, first hand, the unconscious humour which epitomises the Irish and sustains them, especially in times of crisis. Allow yourself to be stirred into this cauldron of Irish stew. Travel back to this tiny village, deep in the heart of Ireland’s countryside, to meet Gortalocca’s characters and to enjoy this extraordinary and gentle love story, with its fast-paced action and plot twists and turns.
