Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
An Irish-American couple and their daughter explore western Ireland's attractions, including the popular Kerry Puck Fair and the more remote islands and seacoasts of Ulster. ``In alternating chapters, the authors share their joy in Ireland's largely unspoiled natural beauty,'' said PW. (June)
Library Journal
The continuing annals of County Clare. The first volume ( O Come Ye Back to Ireland, LJ 10/15/87) chronicled a young couple's flight from Manhattan skyscraper to Irish cottage; the second ( When Summer's in the Meadow, 2/15/89) added baby Deirdre; and this latest installment tells of forays with child across the Emerald Isle. The authors are superb surrogates for armchair tourists amused by an Ireland that is unfailingly charming in an invariably preindustrial sort of way. The latest is irresistible for the now identifiable Williams/Breen prose dialog recounting travel through familiar places (Dublin, Kerry, etc.) in a familiar manner (bed-and-breakfast). More volumes will no doubt follow: a true cottage industry.--John P. Harrington, The Cooper Union, New York correction: Our review of Richard Laermer's Native's Guide to New York (LJ 12/89), published by Prima and distributed by St. Martin's, incorrectly stated that the book lacked information on street fairs, crafts fairs, and festivals. In fact, there is a chapter on ``Best Festivals'' and another on ``Auctions, Shows, and Fairs.'' We apolo gize for the error.
