Coming Home: One Man's Return to the Irish Language (Paperback)
The story of Michael McCaughan's journey around Ireland and the Irish language. From a surreal start involving dedicated listening to Raidio na Gaeltachta's (Irish-Gaelic radio) death notices, to rediscovering the soul of the language through immersing himself in Phil Lynott's music - all without becoming a bore. This book may make you want to follow in his footsteps.
