''The tide spreads a mantle of silk around the Great Blasket Island'. So wrote Micheal O'Guiheen of his beloved island home. But by 1953 the authorities had evacuated the Great Blasket and its traditions were vanishing. Micheal O'Guiheen, 'the Poet' of this book, was the son of Peig Sayers, who wrote An Old Woman's Reflections.
