Blasket Memories presents a powerful insight into the lives of those who lived on the Blasket Island and describes how the island was evacuated in 1953 when their numbers decreased to a point where they could no longer survive as a separate community. The book is based on the writings of Sean O Criomhthain who vividly describes the immense difficulties experienced by the fishing community at the hands of landlords and bailiffs, as they battled with the harsh elements. It also consists of interviews with inhabitants of the island who were eventually forced to leave their homes and live on the mainland.
