Sean Mac Eachaidhabout this book: The book is an behind my life-long residential Irish eyes with a local looking out gaze on Ireland in as fullest aspect as possible, historically, politically, culturally and by employing Irish myth and legends as the means to better enhance an authentic visitor experience and understanding of the Irish and the awe filled landscape and deserted homesteads before them.
This approach places the book as unique since it adds a too often missing Irish narrative in many previous history books or guide books, insofar as it includes Irish terminology and indeed an Irish gaze when depicting Ireland, rather than the standard genre and glossy format that conforms to a set dominant gaze.
A gaze and narrative emanating from British dominant, pre-set notions on acceptable objectivity, impartiality and universalism. All such fixed and set in stone accounts present a stone dead narrative on history. A story that is exclusively his story that excludes her story and for many in Ireland and the Irish Diaspora world wide it excludes our story and living memory which is a narrative vry much alive.
The book is written is such a spirit in my best endeavour to provide a voice to a voiceless and silent Irish from ancient times to the present day. The title of the book alludes to this silence but it also strives to give a presence to the Irish other worlds beyond this earthly world and furthermore bring the visitor and reader into the serenity of the soul filled, silent hush, awe and wonder that the landscape and sacred places of Ireland exude in abundance.
The book contains more than 50 photographs in the firm belief that a picture paints a thousand words to illustrate the silence of the Irish other world at your own fireside to enhance any planned visit to Ireland. However, the book is deliberately and purposefully designed to be a journey in itself which is an all encompassing Irish experience delivering a meaningful experience of Ireland and Irish ways without ever setting foot in Ireland. This book aims to bring Ireland to the reader.
