Description

Perhaps the best-loved of those who wrote about life in this tiny, remote community was Tomas O'Crohan, whose book The Islandman is now revered as a classic. A Day in Our Life, by his son Sean, offers a sort of epilogue to the story of the Gaelic-speaking Blasket, for it tells how, in the dying days of their island way of life, the inhabitants came to settle on the nearby mainland. Here, Sean O'Crohan surveys the mainland scene with the ironical eye of the islander, and provides vivid and entertaining sketches of West Kerry just after the Second World War.
