In 1972 he moved to the Aran Islands. In 1986 his first book, Stones of Aran: Pilgrimage, was published to great acclaim. The second volume of Stones of Aran, subtitled Labyrinth, appeared in 1995. He has also published collections of essays, and maps of the Aran Islands, the Burren and Connemara. Connemara: Listening to the Wind, published in 2006, won the Irish Book Award for Non-fiction. Since 1984 Tim Robinson has lived in Roundstone, Connemara.

Format: Kindle Edition
This was the first of Tim Robinson's books that I read and I've since bought Connemara: Listening to the Wind as I was impressed by this. At times it is a bit of a struggle; the second chapter's geological lingo went WAY over my head and the amount of dates and characters described can be hard to follow. But overall it is well worth reading on for the beautiful writing style and the obvious appreciation of such a fantastic area. Anyone who has been to Connemara will have their visit improved for reading this book.

Format: Hardcover
This book, a companion to Connemara: Listening to the Wind, is a magnificent celebration of one of Europe's most remote and significant landscapes. The book encompasses detailed notes on the history and natural topography of the region as well as an exploration of the lives of many of the people who have inhabited this landscape over the centuries. Robinson's sometimes bleak but always affirming vision is characterised by his meticulous understanding of the mid-west of Ireland, the result of over 35 years of engagement with every aspect of Connemara's past and present. This trilogy, when completed, will undoubtedly achieve classic status.
