Kerry Dwyerabout this book: Ramblings In Ireland is not a guide book. You will not read about the fauna and flora of Ireland or find maps of trails in this book. The book follows one particular journey. It is our journey through the West of Ireland and to a closer understanding of each other. The walking trails form the thread on which I hang memories of the far and recent past along with my obsessions and quirks. There are plenty of descriptions of the wonderful Irish countryside, the people we met, pubs we went to, the Guinness we drank but also about the conversations we had and the cultural differences we experienced.
The title uses the word 'Ramblings' to express a journey and also to express talking using free association in the Freudian sense of the word. Relationships between narrative and actions are tangential.
The artwork on the cover is a watercolour of the bay at the Beara peninsular. It was painted specially for this book by a retired watercolour artist. Her work hangs in galleries in Amsterdam, London, Luxembourg and Bordeaux. There are also some lovely examples of her work in my living room. The artist is my mother and I am proud to have her work associated with mine.
