For Homan, the youngest, life is a free-spirited awakening in a world of old-fashioned virtue and frugality. But no boyhood lasts forever, and an abrupt turn of events signals an end to the idyll.

Exploring the values and mores of an almost lost part of Irish society Rathcormick is an unforgettable memoir: funny, compelling and original.
