Book Description

A Guide to the Silence of the Irish Other World aims to add the too often invisible and absent Irish narrative in many standard history books and all glossy guide books.

This book seeks to include an ever invisible Irish terminology and a fullest Irish gaze to depict Ireland from an Irish perspective, rather than the long set genre and the glossy sanitized format which conforms to a dominant gaze that has been the set in stone narrative usually emanating and deriving from a British pre-set notion and definition on the acceptable, objective, impartial and universal Irish story.

Such fixed set in stone accounts present only a stone dead narrative on Irish history and worse, the Irish People. This story is usually exclusively his story which excludes her story and for many in Ireland and the Irish Diaspora world-wide, it also excludes our story, our pysche and our Irish living memory. A Guide to the Silence of the Irish Other World is a Irish narrative from the soul of Ireland that while silent is very much alive.

The book is written in such an Irish spirit to provide an Irish voice to a voiceless Irish, a silent Irish from ancient times to the present moment. The title of the book alludes to this silence but it also strives to give a living presence to the Irish Other Worlds beyond this earthly world and furthermore bring the visitor and reader into the serenity of the soul-filled, silent hush, awe and wonder that the Irish landscape and its sacred places exude in abundance.

The book also contains more than 50 photographs in the firmest belief that a picture paints a thousand words. This is to better illustrate the silence of the Irish other world and bring it to your own fireside and to enhance any planned visit to Ireland. However, the book is deliberately and purposefully designed to be a journey in itself. A journey that is an all encompassing Irish experience that delivers a meaningful experience of Ireland and Irish ways. The book seeks primarily to bring Ireland to the hearth and home of the reader wherever that home might be world wide and secondly to bring the reader to Ireland. I believe the book decodes a more authentic Ireland that will enrich, awaken and clearly demonstrate Ireland's silent story and loudest wonder for locals and visitors alike.

Go raibh mile maith agaibh - A thousand thanks

5.0 out of 5 stars Magical Literary Journey - misleading Amazon sales June 21, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Magical indeed, mystical, perceptive and enlightening. This is a delightful work which provides a rare insight into some lesser known aspects of the lovely Ireland through a lifelong Irishman with a keen love of his land, possession of his part of its soul and the kindness to share that with others.
Mr. Mac Eachaidh not only writes with a great depth of understanding and ability to translate that to others, he is a marvelous photographer. He captures the entirety of the history and heart of a place for us by intertwining the myth, legend and reality of a setting sot they seem utterly dependent on one another - which, indeed they are.
****************
ALERT : My only disappointment is that Amazon did not make it clear that any version of this wonderful book purchased from anywhere other than its original retailer has those beautiful photos in black and white. This is most unfortunate as it excludes the reader/viewer from the total beauty of the photos and their settings.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sean paints a place I need to visit! May 14, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
In A Guide to the Silence of the Irish Other World I find myself feeling at home in a place I've never trod. Sean's skill with image and word are a true Irish Treasure.
Because of A Guide to the Silence of the Irish Other World, I will soon make my way there, if for no other reason than to shake his hand and say, Go raibh maith agat!

4.0 out of 5 stars Travel guide with a difference November 29, 2012
By LauraB
Format:Paperback
If you are looking for a straightforward travel guide with advice on where to visit and where to stay this isn't the book for you. If you are interested in enhancing your understanding of culture and history, legend, language, sense of place and place names and spirituality in the north of Ireland then you will find this book fascinating as it takes you on a soulful journey that provides reference points and context to many of the places of interest and landmarks. The book encourages the reader to veer off the beaten track and to experience the places visited. There is discussion from the author's viewpoint about the political history and present day issues which are met head on and may not be palatable to everyone, however the author argues that facing these issues and promoting dialogue about them can only contribute to the peace process. I enjoyed this book immensely.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My post office gave it to the wrong person and that person accepted it. So wrong... I will have to reorder it. I follow them on FaceBook and love what they post. I was disappointed that I didn't get to read it.
