Description

In spring, 1940, twenty-four families boarded two buses in Clonbur to make new lives in a new Gaeltacht colony in Meath. Their cattle, sheep and all their worldly possessions travelled separately on thirteen lorries. This is their story.

The book also gives a sense of the life in the big house and the dismantling of a country estate.
