A Journey Across Years
By: Tom Mongan
This Book takes us on a journey across the years; pre-electricity days and nights growing up behind the Twelve Bens of Connemara in a thatched cottage, with the Atlantic Ocean coming up to touch a field of wild flowers just in front of the house.

Now, we bring you Buying Yak Milk in Gurtymadden – its all in the title. Its not the easiest book to categorise so perhaps we will leave it to the inimitable author, Mr. Boske, to explain: ‘Daft Verse, Worse Prose, No ns e ns e, Surreal Yarns and SurRealEr… Cartoons’.
Buying Yak Milk in Gurtymadden will appeal to anyone with a keen sense of humour, an appreciation of wordplay, and enjoys casting a critical eye on contemporary mores and morals. (Text taken from Artisan house)
