9781847171665: West Cork: A Place Apart

Welcome to the spirit, moods and amazing views of the wonderful world of West Cork, truly a place apart. A world of stunning landscapes, craggy cliffs, colourful villages, wild bogland, glorious harbours, fabulous beaches, and rocky mountains; West Cork stands apart as one of the most desirable places to live, work, and visit. The famous spots are all here: Mizen and Beara, with their extraordinary seascapes; Baltimore and Schull, beloved of sailors from all over the world; Gougane Barra, with its timeless peace - and many, many more. There are secret places too, off the beaten track, and the book takes the reader down many side-paths and byways to hidden corners and unexpected treasures, sharing on the way some of the legends and traditions of this region - and always the most wonderful and heartstopping scenery. From a writer and photographer team who lovingly share their responses to the region they are lucky enough to call home: Jo Kerrigan, historian and journalist with national and international publications, and Richard Mills, multiple award-winning press and wildlife photographer.

About the Author:

Jo Kerrigan grew up amid the wild beauties of West Cork; after working in the UK as writer, academic and journalist, she returned home to the place she loved best. She now writes regularly for a range of publications, including The Irish Examiner and the Evening Echo as well as international magazines, and operates a very popular online weblog. Richard Mills, born in Provence, moved to West Cork at the age of 16. Since then he has combined the career of press photographer with The Irish Examiner and Evening Echo, with that of keen wildlife photographer, garnering many national and international awards and seeing his images published across the world. He has also been the subject of a TV programme by the wildlife film maker, Eamon de Buitlear.

Review:

stunning ... deeply entertaining ... way above the ordinary Evening Echo wonderful ... truly a gem of a book -- The Bandon Opinion beautifully produced ... an ode to West Cork ... an insider's guide ... written and captured with love and passion -- Connacht Tribune a love story by a gifted writer and a talented photographer about their beloved home of West Cork. They know and savor every nook and cranny of this part of the world, the flora and the fauna and the fables. It's not just a picture book, it's a book with pictures, and what photos they are. Jo Kerrigan is a born storyteller and Richard Mills has a wonderful eye for the landscapes and inhabitants of this little corner of the Emerald Isle, where life seems to proceed at a slower pace and the old spirits still abide. If Brigadoon exists, it is here. -- Amazon.com 'inviting lyrical text and beautiful atmospheric photographs ... a fascinating read' -- Evening Echo 'a travel guide, nature reference and photography book all rolled into one' -- Evening Echo 'a book which captures the charm and beauty of the county' -- Evening Echo 'do yourself a favour, pick up a copy of this wonderful book ... you won't be disappointed' -- Evening Echo 'a thoughtful, deeply felt invitation to sample the splendours of West Cork for local and visitor alike' -- Ireland of the Welcomes highlights not only its coastline, but its inland beauty as well ... stunning photographs ... Richard's many photographs - over 100 - present a visual story throughout the book, complimenting the text wonderfully ... The book is a real treat -- Sherkin Comment
