Castles, Follies and Four-Leaf Clovers Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Rich in history, castles and larger-than-life characters, St.

Declan's Way is one of Ireland's best kept secrets. Rosamund's adventures begin when she is lent a map of the ancient highway and pilgrim route St.

Declan's Way. Intrigued, she returns to Ireland. Setting off from the famous Rock of Cashel in County Tipperary, she travels through small towns and villages, across the beautiful Knockmealdown Mountains, to the town of Lismore with its spectacular castle, where her family used to live, and then on to the fishing village of Ardmore in County Waterford. Battling the rain as she follows narrow country roads, little used tracks and overgrown paths, she traces the footsteps of St.

Declan. From a day at a horse fair to climbing mountains and tracking down fairy forts, she captures perfectly the local characters and castles, miraculous wells and talking statues, the broken dreams and local legends.

Stories of goddesses, ghosts and fairies are intertwined with the eccentricities and daily lives of everyday people - this is a journey full of the surprises that only Ireland can offer.
