Overview

Everywhere in Ireland there is something of Interest or beauty or wonder. It might be a spectacular landscape, or some fascinating industrial curiosity, or just a conversational encounter with one of the gentle people of the country. This book tells the story of a journey around Ireland, on foot over many years, and of the little adventures that befell the rambler on his way. While the land became flooded with mobile phones and iPods and the Celtic Tiger roared briefly before slinking back to his lair, the happy wanderer hobbled onward round the coastal counties, soaking up the landscape (sometimes literally) and enjoying the company of chance-met people.

This generous journey - this commodious vicus - was part pilgrimage, part adventure travel, part educational tour and part Zen experience, but above all it was enormous fun. In Rambling Round Ireland, Peter Lynch invites the reader to join him as he looks back at his marvellous travels.
