Arnold Meagher was born in a small village in the heart of IrelandBallinamuck 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 he begins his stories of growing up in Irelands heartland, among villagers who loved to chat, among dew-covered pastures on his grandmothers 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 on balance trumped his fears. These stories, told with a childs 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.
