In Search of Ireland Summary

In Search of Ireland by H. V. Morton

Shortly after the declaration of the Irish Free State, H V Morton goes IN SEARCH OF IRELAND by motor-car and finds, amongst other things, a Norman village in Galway, lobster fishers, a shy girl in need of an apron in Connemara and a great many beds in which Michael Collins is said to have slept. Full of local stories and way-side conversations, Morton's witty and enticing travelogue recalls a way of life not quite disappeared even at the beginning of a new century. Originally published in the 1920s, anecdotal, leisurely, full of character and event, insight and information, this is travel writing of the very highest order.
