At the Edge
Walking the Atlantic Coast of Ireland and Scotland

Joseph Murphy

At the Edge tells the story of a 1500 kilometre walk from the southwest corner of Ireland to the northwest corner of Scotland. By following the Atlantic coast all the way, Joseph links the most vibrant Gaelic communities. Reflections on identity, culture and sustainability, and use of Gaelic in the text, make this a unique and memorable book. It will appeal particularly to those with Irish or Scottish heritage and no doubt some will want to do the journey themselves - although perhaps not on foot.
