Book Launch: Waves of the Shore – THE LIFE AND TIMES OF A CONNEMARA ISLAND
27th September 2019 @ 5:30 pm
In the book Waves on the Shore the author tries to capture Inishturk South in all its dimensions, during the last years of its occupation in the 1970s; from the children in the school, to the weather, the tides, the geology, the natural history, geography and folklore and the culture of this emblematic piece of Irish life. It also captures the work of a young school
teacher and the Irish educational system at the time, as well as providing an historical document of the interactions of the islanders with their teachers, the curriculum that was used and the everyday life of this once vibrant island community
