Author(s): Joanne Doherty
Joanne Doherty, a New Zealander of Irish descent, arrives in Ireland to work for a year, and to explore her family's roots. She soon feels completely at home. Joanne's travelogue captures Ireland's beauty and history, and the wit, wisdom, and unpredictable 'Irishness' of its people...specially the craic. No other word sums up the magic, the fun, the conversation, music and commotion of Irish people being together. The title is an endearing Irish farewell - after numerous "Bye, byes" and a sprinkle of "God blesses", the final "Mind y'self now, Jewarne" left her feeling cared for and protected. A book for anybody of Irish descent, or who just enjoys things Irish.
