The Old Lady by Eilís Petroni

“The Old Lady”

This is an epic story of an Irish sailboat and of the McDonagh family who owns her.

May a boat have a soul?  Four generations of an Irish family, the McDonaghs, firmly believe it.

The Old Lady tells the poignant story of an iconic Galway Hooker and her owners Braendán, Seán, Pádraig and Conor.  For them all the Old Lady represents their choice of a free, independent life, driven by variable winds and by their inner strength.

Their stories are intrinsically linked to that of the boat through many ordinary and extraordinary events.  Far beyond being a means of livlihood, the boat is a source of emotional support and inspiration for the McDonaghs and for the people related to them in various ways.

The Old Lady represents the living symbol of a legacy spanning across a century, bridging the lives, the experiences and the dreams of the old and the young generations.
