At the Edge

Colmcille sponsored Joseph Murphy on his 1500 kilmometre  walk from the southwest corner of Ireland to the northwest corner of Scotland.

By following the Atlantic coast all the way, Joseph links the most vibrant Gaelic communities and this is all captued in his book, At the Edge: Walking the Atlantic Coast of Ireland and Scotland published by Sandstone Press 2009. Reflections on identity, culture and sustainability, and use of Gaelic (Irish and Scottish) in the text, make this a unique and memorable book.
