Hungry for Home: Leaving the Blaskets: A Journey From the Edge of Ireland
Cole Morton (au). On Christmas Eve, 1946, the death of a young man on a remote island off the west coast of Ireland was the final catalyst for the end of the island community, whose people spoke a pure form of Irish. With no priest, doctor or policeman on the Great Blasket to help them, they were forced to abandon their way of life & plead for evacuation, which finally took place in 1953. This book tells the story of an Irish island & the events that led to its being abandoned. Moreton goes in search of the missing islanders, discovering a few survivors still alive within sight of the Great Blasket. A book about home & what it means, a voyage to America from the edge of Ireland, & a gripping account of a quest for a vanished people. Map.
