Bought this book second hand at the church bookstall of Holywood Non-Subscribing Presbyterian Church, where there are secondhand books for sale 3 for £1 on Saturday mornings in the 'Old Schoolroom' and coffee is sold from 10-12 every Saturday morning, follow the signs and the path down the side of the church! I just loved every page of this, so well written, and evoking the old Ireland. Must look for more of Eddie Stack's writing.
