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.

Landscape And History On The Medieval Irish Frontier

Landscape And History On The Medieval Irish Frontier

50.00

Examines one of the most important frontier regions of Europe in the thirteenth century by defining the relationship between Gaelic lords, Anglo-Norman lords, and the medieval environmental landscape of the King’s Cantreds, a space that was both the homeland of O’Conor royal authority from the eighth century and a defined holding of the English kings in the early thirteenth century.

This work offers a new and innovative insight into the history of thirteenth-century Ireland by exploring the interplay between Gaelic lords, Anglo-Norman lords, and the medieval environmental landscape that connected them. Focusing on the king’s cantreds of Roscommon, a space that was both the homeland of the O’Conor royal authority from the eighth century and a defined holding of the English kings from the early thirteenth century.

The book explores the frontier landscape as an active player in its own right within Irish history and discusses the way that both Gaels and Anglo-Normans interacted with, and were in turn influenced by, this environment. This unique approach to Irish history enables the author to step away from the traditional view of a dyadic relationship between Gaelic and Anglo-Norman lords and instead demonstrate that not only did both sides alter and change the environment around them according to their perceptions of their enemies and the threat posed by the land, but that the landscape itself was to play a significant role in shaping and influencing the identities and destiny of its inhabitants.
