Jaywalking with the Irish

16th Sep 2020

A family moves from the US to Ireland. The Father had travelled there previously and been enraptured by the country. He returned with his wife. Then when he was 47 and they were a bit bored with the commonplace and lack of community in America, they decided to take their family on an adventure

This is a lovely story, sometimes the ego or arrogance of the characters grate in these sort of stories, but all the characters appealed to me. Nice insight into Ireland in the early 2000s. From the lovely, welcoming, story telling, magical, to the hard truths of modernising Ireland.
