Dedicated To Sligo

Dedicated To Sligo

25,00

A wide range of authors describe, analyse, interpret and re-interpret parts of the complex understudied, and at times misunderstood, archive of eight thousand years of Co. Sligo’s past.

Drawing on new and exciting knowledge about what Sligo looked like at times in the remote past, the events which changed lifestyles and the products of humble and status craftsmen the authors give us a greater understanding of our county and its place in Ireland’s past and present and they inform us of some inspired intellectual and artistic giants of more recent centuries.

The illustrations draw us out into the Sligo landscape, so richly endowed with the natural beauty, archaeology and history that surrounds us all the days of our lives.

Lady Of The Lake & Other Short Stories By Richard Golden

Lady Of The Lake & Other Short Stories By Richard Golden

12,00

This collection of nineteen short stories deals with murder, the supernatural, immigration, separation, relationships, love and life. While the stories are set mainly in rural Ireland some inevitably cross the Irish sea. They provide a glimpse of Irish life fast disappearing and range from dark comedy to poignancy.

In ‘Lady of the Lake’ the peace and tranquility of a lakeside village is broken by the murder of a quiet if somewhat inquisitive stranger.

The ticking of an old clock brings back childhood memories of a formidable old woman in ‘Kate the Bush.’

​The short story ‘The Homecoming’ explores the relationship between a father and son against the background of immigration and advancing years.

In ‘A Grave Matter’, Flaherty’s pub is frequented by local drunkards, headers, wasters and anybody else who happens yo be passing by and has the misfortune to call in.
