Looking Under Stones: Roots, Family and a Dingle Childhood

'This is not a story of me, but of me and mine, of my place and theirs, of places north, south, east and west in Ireland ... and of the times and traditions that left an indelible mark on a growing boy.'

''a hymn to the simple pleasures of growing up in small-town Ireland in the 1950s and 1960s. The tenor is upbeat and positive and it is a joy to read, chronicling as it does the intricate web of loyalties to family and parish that bound a community together.Populated by lively characters who would not be out of place in a Dickens novel. This book bursts with vitality and lovingly records the lives of the common people of Corca Dhuibhne at fairs and markets, wakes and weddings, bonfire nights and Wren days. In writing it, Joe O'Toole has done us all a service.'' Eugene McEldowney - The Irish Times
