Abstract:

In November 1968, at the age of twenty-two, Andrew McNeillie left his job and his girlfriend in Wales and travelled to Inishmore, one of the isolated Aran Islands off the Atlantic coast of Ireland. He was not a tourist; he stayed eleven months on Inishmore, living alone in a tiny house. AN ARAN KEENING is a limpidly written memoir of that time, a celebration of the island and its people, a lament for a way of life that has vanished altogether now. McNeillie tells of a time when island life was, in both mind and body, more stark and more dramatic than today. His memoir commemorates both the immortality of youth and the passing of a world.
