Robinson, Tim, Connemara: A Little Gaelic Kingdom (Dublin: Penguin Ireland, 2011).
Connemara: A Little Gaelic Kingdom is the triumphant conclusion to Tim Robinson's extraordinary Connemara trilogy, which Robert Macfarlane has called 'one of the most remarkable non-fiction projects undertaken in English'. Robinson writes about the people, places and history of south Connemara - one of Ireland's last Gaelic-speaking enclaves - with the encyclopaedic knowledge of a cartographer and the grace of a born writer. From the man who has been praised in the highest terms by Joseph O'Connor ('Robinson writes with passion, grace and scholarly scruple, but also with extraordinary beauty'), John Burnside ('one of the finest of contemporary prose stylists') and Giles Foden ('an indubitable classic'), among many others, this is one of the publishing events of 2011 and the conclusion of one of the great literary projects of our time.
