Ireland's Pirate Trail : A Quest to Uncover Our Swashbuckling Past Paperback
by Des Ekin
Bloodthirsty buccaneers and buried treasure, fierce sea battles and cold-blooded murders, Barbary ducats and silver pieces of eight. Des Ekin embarks on a roadtrip around the entire coast of Ireland, in search of our piratical heritage, uncovering an amazing history of swashbuckling bandits, both Irish-born and imported. Ireland's Pirate Trail tells stories of freebooters and pirates from every corner of our coast over a thousand years, including famous pirates like Anne Bonny and William Lamport, who set off to ply their trade in the Caribbean.
Ekin also debunks many myths about our most well-known sea warrior, Granuaile, the `Pirate Queen' of Mayo.
Thoroughly researched and beautifully told. Filled with exciting untold stories.
