Walking Off the Land offers a series of glimpses into a disappearing way of life – a rural childhood on a small Ulster farm.
Drawing a soft echo of remembrance into the present moment, this collection of poems explores the seasonal rituals and traditions that once shaped the days and lives of those who worked the land. It also traces the gradual decline of a family and an old farm.
Walking Off the Land is a loving history of country life, of loss and of letting go.
