My Irish Library

A typical Irish village, Glencoe, from John L. Stoddard’s Ireland.

The Songs and Sonets of John Donne, 1956

Dancing at Lughnasa, screenplay by Frank McGuinness (based on Brian Friel’s play), 1998

Saint Patrick’s Rock, by Rev. Augustine O’Donnell, 1961

Rebel Irishwomen, by R.M. Fox, 1935

History of Ireland, by A.M. Nolan, 1905

Eleven Plays of William Butler Yeats, 1964

The Mentor Book of Irish Poetry, 1965

  1. The lure of a bargain. In this case a genuine one. Often when I am visiting someone’s home, I look in vain for shelves full of books; often there are no books at all. We have far more books than shelves and I can’t imagine life without being surrounded by
    these old ‘friends’.
