Publisher's Summary

Set in 1950s rural Ireland, Rathcormick is an engaging tale of a large and happy family: a stern and domineering Papa, a warm and practical Mamma, their two daughters and six sons. For Homan, the youngest, life is a free-spirited awakening in an adult world of old-fashioned virtue and frugality. He recalls the moment that the day-old chicks arrived, holidays in Kilkee and the eight-mile trudge to school. But no boyhood lasts forever, and an abrupt turn of events signals an end to the idyll.

Critic Reviews

"A wholly delightful family memoir of Protestants in 1950s rural Ireland – an Irish seam that is rarely tapped for its considerable riches." (William Trevor, Guardian)
"Not a wet miserable childhood, á la Frank McCourt, but a Protestant childhood and one that makes for hugely enjoyable reading." (Sunday Independent)
