A reflection on the lives of people living along the west coast of Co. Mayo, mainly during the 19th century.

The book also examines life in Achill, Tiernaur and Erris, looking at various aspects of life in post famine in Co. Mayo.
The author, Patrick Mullarkey, was born in Ballycroy, and spent a number of years researching and compiling this book.
