A Year’s Turning
|Publication Date||September 2022|
Michael Viney and his wife Ethna lived in the city, had successful jobs in the media and had just turned forty when they made a life-changing decision: to give up everything for a self-reliant existence on a remote cottage farm in County Mayo, on the West Coast of Ireland. This enchanting chronicle of life on the land follows the highs and lows of one year in the Irish countryside.
Since then, for more than forty years, Michael Viney’s weekly columns in The Irish Times have established his reputation as a uniquely compassionate and informed commentator on the natural world, and undoubtedly one of Ireland’s greatest nature writers.
