Synopsis

First captivated by the Burren in the early 1970s, Gordon D'Arcy has spent over thirty years living on its edge and exploring its remarkable natural heritage and rich human history. Now he celebrates the flora, fauna and people of the region with stories from his diaries and original watercolours that convey a deep affection and intimacy.Join Gordon in rambling the length and breadth of this renowned place, through its moods and seasons, befriending its diverse inhabitants, and breathing the Atlantic air that whispers its welcome to all comers.

GORDON D'ARCY is an environmental writer, artist and educator. The main focus of his work has been the limestone habitat of the Burren. Guiding Burren lovers and visitors alike, educating schoolchildren, and lecturing in the Burren College of Art, he has always kept his enthusiasm for this internationally important landscape. The author of several natural history books, he has illustrated Ireland's Animals: Myths, Legends and Folklore (2010) and Ireland's Birds: Myths, Legends and Folklore (2015) both by Niall MacCoitir.www.gordondarcynature.com
