About the book:

This is a translation of an autobiography by Tomas O'Cinneide, first published as "Ar Seachran" in 1982. He was born in Graigue, at the end of the Dingle peninsula, in 1914. He was in his time a clerical student, an army officer, a teacher of Gaelic, a postman, an American emigrant, a factory worker in San Francisco, a library sweeper, a down-and-out in Skid Row and a seanchai. The book tells the story with humour and without self-pity. Too independent to suffer fools in authority and too sociable to keep the money he saved, he got more of life's kicks than ha'pence. In his papally named caravan he contemplates life - and death - in his birthplace.
