A place apart : Northern Ireland in the 1970s

£5.99

Product description

A place apart : Northern Ireland in the 1970s by Dervla Murphy. 1st Published in 1978 this edition published by Eland 2014 with an afterword by David Ramsbotham. Paperback in very good condition with some marks to page edges.

A Place Apart is a remarkable geographical and psychological travelogue that rises above history, politics, theology and economics. - - Created by a southern Irishwoman, cycling into the mayhem of Northern Ireland in order to try and sort out her own opinions and emotions about this troubled land. She came equipped with her own childhood experiences of murder and Republican martyrdom, but was otherwise unfettered by sectarian loyalties and armed with a delightful curiosity, a fine ear for anecdote, an ability to stand her own at the bar and penetrating intelligence. She travelled extensively through both town and country, frequently finding herself in horrifying situations, and sometimes among people stiff with hate and grief: but equally, she discovered an unquenchable spirit everywhere that refused to die.
