Description

Full of amusement, this series of fictional tales starts with a Galwayman's arrival in Tipperary's post-famine days and portrays the daily lives of a hillside community.

Written in the colloquial and lyrical language of some of our ancestors, it tells - amongst others - such diverse stories as the reliance of families on children rabbit-poaching, on the pre-dawn cattle-droving days of a young school-leaver, the re-appearance of a dead girl to her newly-born sister...along with a number of love-hate incidents, like the townie scorn for a mountainy man at the show-fair, before he walks off with the big trophy!
