Product Description

About the Author

David Walsh is a Dublin solicitor and Notary Public, living and working in Ranelagh with his wife Sheila. On a sailing/climbing trip to Spitsbergen in 1990 he saw sea kayaks glide between icebergs in a remote frozen Magdalena Fjord. He was blown away, and the next part of his life began immediately. He bought a sea kayak within weeks of getting home, and kayaking has consumed his life ever since. Islands became David s focus. He was a founder member of Irish Sea Kayaking Association and held the position of Chairman from 1995 to 2003, relinquishing the post only to see to the publication of the initial Oileain.

I can dream! 6 Jun 2014
By james - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I will never sail the coastline of Ireland in a kayak (drat!), but thanks to David Walsh I can imagine what it might be like.
The technical details are useless to me (tides and currents, etc.), but I bought the book for the photos, the stories and the sidebars (neat little tidbits of history and lore that you can research further).
The author maintains just the right tone throughout, punctuated occasionally by a humorous aside (often pointing out a totally inappropriate island name).
This book would be invaluable to a kayaker.
Polished but not stuffy.
