Product description

Review

This magnificent book is a detailed compendium of the most important cultural aspects of one of Ireland's most stunning landscapes, Kerry's Iveragh peninsula. The variety and depth of the heritage of this distinctive region is impressive in both Irish and European contexts, particularly in terms of landscape, archaeology and folklore as well as for the pivotal role it played in early global telecommunications. This volume is an inspiring example of interdisciplinary scholarship in which the work of academics and local historians is successfully combined with that of poets and artists. The result is an accessible, highly readable and beautifully illustrated volume that succeeds in conveying a true sense of the multifaceted spirit and duchas of the peninsula that is Iveragh. Dr. Patrick F. Wallace, Director National Museum of Ireland This is one of the most beautiful books I've been privileged to experience. I say 'experience' because it turns history, geography and mythology into a stunningly arresting gallery through which I can move in a state of fascinated admiration and delight. Sometimes, moving through that unique gallery, I simply close my eyes and enjoy the beauty of the world created and explored in Kerry by all the gifted people who produced this book. Cork University Press, Editors John Crowley and John Sheehan, Cartographic Editor Mike Murphy, and Consultants Nick Hogan and Helen Bradley can be proud of this massive work of art which will charm, delight and educate generations to come. Brendan Kennelly He was Professor of Modern Literature at Trinity College, Dublin for over 30 years, and retired from that post in 2005.
