An awe-inspiring account of tours around Ireland - A travelogue

In Search Of Ireland Again
By John Butler

This is a personal account of the author’s tours of Ireland. The book tells of a country in desperate poverty, resurgence into prosperity, the fight for independence and the violence involved. It tells of the eternal haemorrhaging of its people through emigration.
Be captivated and bewitched by the sheer beauty of this glorious land as the author takes you on an unforgettable and ‘guided’ tour of Glengariff, Cushenden, Donegal, Cong, Knock, Claddagh, Dublin, Galway, Mount Melleray and more. Clever, compelling and complete with photographs!

Author John Butler says “My love of Ireland inspired me to write of my tours … I do not see it only through my own eyes but through those of the King of travel writers, H.V. Morton, eighty years ago... ‘In Search of Ireland Again’ is more than a travelogue; it is a personal observation and evaluation of the traumatic phases of the country and its history - seen in past, present and future.”

“Well researched, highly enjoyable and witty travelogue”
