The Burren in County Clare is slow to For years Paul Clements has been drawn to its history, mystery and peculiarities. Here he writes absorbingly about the rocks, hills and walls, the colours, the animals, and subjects that excite him, such as the exotic wild flowers, ancient ruins, early morning birdsong,and the smell of whiskey in historic pubs. A hunter and gatherer of information, the author ferrets out little-known facts and lore on the Burren and weaves them together. Burren Country is infused with warmth and wit, with the ordinary and the extraordinary. It celebrates outdoor life and uncovers what the Burren means to writers, painters and musicians who know it intimately. It focuses on particularities of place: Poulnabrone dolmen seen through the eyes of photographers; a patch of ground at Gleninagh where he joins a pilgrimage; a tour of the wandering boulders; and an epiphany on the summit of Mullaghmore Mountain. Join him in a fascinating odyssey into one of Ireland's magical and unique places.
