Beschreibungen

'Some part of me believed I would become a more complete person if I spoke Irish, more in tune with my roots, my identity, my very being.’
'A hugely enjoyable linguistic travelogue that is also a sort of love story: full of passion, lightness, but, also, commitment. McCaughan’s engaging prose is a joy to read. Discover the Sex Pistols’ connection with Cúil Aodha and many another startling fact about the Irish language. This journey towards a homecoming will touch many hearts.’ Joseph O'Connor
This is the story of Michael McCaughan’s journey around Ireland and the Irish language. From a surreal start involving dedicated listening to Raidió na Gaeltachta’s death notices, to rediscovering the soul of the language through immersing himself in Phil Lynott’s music – all without becoming a Gaelbore – Coming Home will make you want to follow in his footsteps and strike out in search of the grá.
