New Book Launch The Island Imagined by The sea

28 May 2014 - 28 May 2014 The Rathlin Suite in the Marine Hotel, Sutton Cross.

The book is a weave of social, ecological and personal history. The social component covers items such as notable shipwrecks, plundering, some prehistory (the Battle of Clontarf), Captain Bligh, James Joyce’s ‘bird girl’, the island’s many tragic suicides and one or two murders. . . . The book concludes by suggesting that Bull Island’s ecological problems are a useful symbol for what is happening in our world. 

There is much we can learn from this island imagined by the sea.
