McCarthy's Bar: A Journey of Discovery In Ireland
Despite the many exotic places Pete McCarthy has visited, he finds that nowhere else can match the particular magic of Ireland, his mothers homeland. In McCarthy's Bar, his journey begins in Cork and continues along the west coast to Donegal in the north. Traveling through spectacular landscapes, but at all times obeying the rule, never pass a bar that has your name on it, he encounters McCarthys bars up and down the land, meeting fascinating people before pleading to be let out at four oclock in the morning. Written by someone who is at once an insider and an outside, McCarthy's Bar is a wonderfully funny and affectionate portrait of a rapidly changing country.
