Reading Ireland Month 2020 with Cathy746

I’ve decided to join in with Cathy (at Cathy746 blog) to read some books by (or about) Irish people or the country itself, and as a start (although it’s actually in its second week), I pondered to myself exactly how much Irish literature I’d read over the past few years.

(BTW, if you haven’t met Cathy yet, her blog is really interesting and all about Irish lit. She is one of its biggest cheerleaders in bookish circles, it seems.)

So, I went trawling through my blog posts and found quite a few. Most of these I have loved so I think you may as well. Have a nosie if you’d like:

  • Pygmalion – George Bernard Shaw (1912) play
  • The Circle of Friends – Maeve Binchey (F)
  • The Things We Lose, the Things We Leave Behind – Billy O’Callaghan (F/short stories)

    • Glad to hear that you have loved both Dracula and Brooklyn. I also really enjoy those reads, and would like to find more Toibin to pick up. That list of TBR titles keeps growing. Have you seen the movie for Brooklyn? It’s good as well.

      About the Country Girls trilogy – it can be a little tough to find at times (at least it was for me), but they are each worth tracking down. Very gritty kitchen-sink drama and yet much than that. I bet you’ll enjoy them. 🙂

      • I’m going to try the trilogy for sure. I want to see Brooklyn. No WIFI at the moment due to horrible Frontier Communications and our library doesn’t have a dvd. I’ll request it soon from the regional library
