Book review

This book examines a family's move from County Kerry to the newly-established Meath Gaeltacht in the 1930s under the Irish government’s rural resettlement scheme. From the small town of Imilea in the Gaeltacht area of Corca Dhuibhne in Kerry, the author remembers hearing stories about the rural resettlement scheme when she was young. It offered the chance of a new beginning to many families living in poverty in the Gaeltacht areas of Connemara, Kerry and Donegal. Unfortunately, it also meant the splintering of communities, the breaking of bonds that had been formed over generations, and the dilution of the Irish language, and the novel explores these themes.
