Publisher's Summary

Arnold Meagher was born in a small village in the heart of Ireland, Ballinamuck in the County of Longford. When he was four, he moved with his family to the larger village of Drumlish, four-and-a-half miles away. It is in the larger village that his stories of growing up in Ireland's heartland begin: among villagers who loved to chat, among dew-covered pastures on his grandmother's farm and among the fairy forts and whispering bogs that dot the countryside.
He tells of his joys and fears. His joys were many and often trumped his fears. These stories, told with a child's innocence and candor, paint a portrait of the heartland that uplifts and swells the Irish heart with pride.
Ireland, My Ireland deals with a rural Ireland of the 1940s and a way of living that is rapidly disappearing, but lives on in the stories that Irish men and women of that generation, scattered around the world, pass on to their children and grandchildren. This book is part of that storytelling tradition.

Surprises galore, get ready for many sound effects

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I would have appreciated being told up front about all the instrumental music, choral singing and repetitious sound effects, some loud and potentially disruptive such as the sound of a whiste being blown loudly by the ref at a football game.. each and every time its use arises during the account of the game.
