The tip of the Dingle Peninsula, at the westernmost edge of Europe, is one of Ireland's most isolated regions. For millennia, it has also been a hub for foreign visitors: its position made it a medieval centre for traders, and the wildness of its remote landscape has been the setting for spiritual pilgrimage. This seeming paradox is what makes Dingle and its western hinterland unique: the ancient, native culture has been preserved, while also being influenced by the world at large. This rich heritage is best understood by chatting with the people who live and work here. But how many visitors get that opportunity? Starting with Dingle town, Felicity Hayes-McCoy takes us on an insiders' tour of the region, interviewing locals along the way, ranging from farmers, postmasters and boatmen to museum curators, radio presenters and sean-nos singers. A resident for the last twenty years, Felicity offers practical information and advice as well as cultural insights that will give any visitor a deeper understanding of this special place.

Multilingualism And The Periphery

Multilingualism and the Periphery is an edited volume that explores the ways in which core-periphery dynamics shape multilingualism. The research focuses on peripheral sites, which are defined by a relationship-be it geographic, political, economic etc.-to some perceived centre. Viewing multilingualism through the lens of core-periphery dynamics allows the contributors to highlight language ideological tensions with regard to language boundary-making, language ownership, commodification and authenticity, as well as the ways in which speakers seek novel solutions in adapting their linguistic resources to new situations and thereby develop innovative language practices. Since the core-periphery relationship is never fixed, but instead constantly renegotiated and mutually constitutive, the essays in the volume are particularly concerned with processes of peripheralization and of centralization. The volume includes ten essays by leading scholars in the field, and introductory and concluding remarks by the volume editors.

The Irish National League In Dingle County Kerry 1885 1892

During the period 1885-92 the Irish National League was the largest nationalist organisation in the country. With a branch structure of over 1500 clubs nationwide it provided the backbone for the Home Rule movement as well as orchestrating agrarian agitation. This work concentrates on the movement's phenomenal rise and fall in the Dingle Poor Law Union. It examines the emergence of league courts through which the National League created an alternative legal system to that of the crown. These courts controlled access to land and relations between various social groups such as farmers and agricultural labourers. Those who failed to comply with the National League faced the movement's prime weapon, the boycott. The League was so successful in gaining power in the region that the RIC District Inspector for Dingle claimed that the law of the land is nowhere and the law of the League everywhere. In addition, the National League gained control of the local government body of the time, the Board of Guardians, but the movement was to be divided by the competing class and political motives of its membership. In examining this critical juncture in the history of the region, this work provides an insight into the fabric of local politics and society in late nineteenth century Dingle.

For many years Ireland has been a popular tourist destination and tourism has been one of the most significant social, economic and cultural forces in Irish society. Irish Tourism: Image, Culture and Identity engages with major national and international debates on contemporary tourism through cutting-edge research. The book explores the multi-faceted nature of this important phenomenon, drawing on current work in sociology, cultural studies, ethnography, and language studies. For those who theorise about tourism and those who make practical day-to-day decisions on tourism policy, Irish Tourism will provide invaluable insights into historical and contemporary tourist representations, practices and impacts. In addressing issues such as the relationship between the local and the global in tourist settings, the construction of tourist imagery and products, and the development of tourism policy, contributors to Irish Tourism offer an innovative and critical analysis of the impact of global tourism on a small country. This book will be indispensable reading for students and scholars in Tourism Studies and Irish Studies and will also be essential for students of sociology, cultural studies, geography, languages and anthropology.

Because of their great depth and distance from the shore, continental rises have been relatively insulated from geological explorations. Distinguished international experts offer new interpretations of continental-rise deposition at several different locations along the margins of the Atlantic Ocean in this volume. They provide findings generated by new measurement and imaging technology, complete with fold-out maps that display a panorama of erosional features for comparison with other ocean regions. New techniques for detecting and dating tectonic episodes that affect continental rise deposition will be especially useful to petroleum engineers involved in offshore oil exploration. Information is included on the role of massive slides in forming continental-rise deposits and interaction of sedimentation on modern continental rises.

"It was half past five in the morning as I lurched through the front door of the B&B. Mrs. O'Sullivan appeared just in time to see me pause to admire the luminous Virgin holy water stand with integral night-light, and knock it off the wall. Politely declining the six rounds of ham sandwiches on the tray she was holding, I edged gingerly along the hallway to the wrong bedroom door and opened it." Despite the many exotic places Peter McCarthy has visited, he finds that nowhere else can match the particular magic of Ireland, his mother's homeland. In McCarthy's Bar, his journey begins in Cork and continues along the west coast to Donegal in the north. Traveling through spectacular landscapes, but at all times obeying the rule, "never pass a bar that has your name on it," he encounters McCarthy's bars up and down the land, meeting fascinating people before pleading to be let out at four o'clock in the morning. Through adventures with English hippies who have colonized a desolate mountain; roots-seeking, buffet-devouring American tourists; priests for whom the word "father" has a loaded meaning; enthusiastic Germans who "here since many years holidays are making;" and his fellow barefoot pilgrims on an island called Purgatory, Peter pursues the secrets of Ireland's global popularity and his own confused Irish-Anglo identity. Written by someone who is at once an insider and an outsider, McCarthy's Bar is a wonderfully funny and affectionate portrait of a rapidly changing country.

The image of green and rural Ireland is familiar to everyone. The Rough Guide, though, is not like other guides: it looks beyond the blarney to explore the real charms of a vital European nation. The countryside is fully covered, of course, from the rugged Mountains of Mourne to the wild Atlantic Coast. But the Rough Guide to Ireland also investigates the extraordinary literary culture, keys into the undercurrents of the deep musical tradition, and explores nightlife in the cities as well as discussing the realities of life, north and south. There's extensive detail on the basics, where to stay, where to eat and drink, and much more which is not so obvious, like where to witness the ritual of bargaining at the ancient fairs or how to deal with the complex anomalies of the North.
