Abstract:

"In 1889 Jim Connell (1852-1929) wrote 'The Red Flag', which became the anthem of the international Labour movement. This book is a vivid series of autobiographical sketches that describe Connell's early life among the Slieve Blooms and his move to London's East End. At weekends he sallies forth with his companions and beloved lurcher Nellie in quest of game: hare, pheasant, rabbit, partridge and salmon - most of it illegally trapped, snared or shot. He encounters magistrates and landlords, evoking a hierarchical late-Victorian world in which town and country merge, and peasant and gentry find common cause in a love of sport and the call of the wild."--Jacket.
