Abstract:

Barefoot in Mullyneeny is Bryan Gallagher's evocative tale of a childhood, remembered through the people and landscape of Fermanagh. Bryan chronicles a time when all the big boys went to school in bare feet and where it was known to be nothing less than the biblical truth that putting a horse hair across the palm of your hand when you were about to be slapped would split the cane in two. Whether relating tales of tragedies and murders, ghosts and fairy forts, or of the anguish of emigration, of rites of passage and swimming to Rabbit Island, this remarkable memoir vividly recreates life in rural Ireland in the 1940s and 50s.
