Barney Ó Maoilearcaigh, a middle-aged bachelor from West Cork, is on his way to Cork to be godfather to his brother’s son. But he never reached Cork and nothing was ever heard of him until fifteen years later. Brendan heard his uncle’s voice in his head. Teenagers and even adults will find it hard to put down this tale of fantasy until they reach the last page. Includes a short dictionary at end of book.
