‘Felicity Hayes-McCoy has done this country a great service by removing the veil that blinds us to the beauty and wealth of rural Ireland.’  Alice Taylor

An emigrant to England in the 1970s, Felicity Hayes-McCoy knew she’d return to Corca Dhuibhne, Ireland’s Dingle peninsula, a place she’d fallen in love with at seventeen. Now she and her English husband have restored a stone house there, the focus for this chronicle in response to reader requests for an illustrated sequel to her memoir, The House on an Irish Hillside.

The Celts celebrated the cycle of the seasons as a vibrant expression of eternity, endlessly turning from darkness to light and back again. Enough Is Plenty celebrates these seasonal rhythms in and around the author’s house and garden at the western end of Ireland’s Dingle Peninsula. It is about the ordinary small pleasures that can easily go unnoticed, and offers recipes from her kitchen and information on organic food production and gardening.

It views the year from a place where a vibrant twenty-first century lifestyle is still marked by Ireland’s Celtic past and the ancient rhythms of Samhain (winter), Imbolc (spring), Bealtaine (summer) and Lughnasa (autumn). In this way of life, health and happiness are rooted in awareness of nature and the environment, and nourishment comes from music, friendship and storytelling as well as from good food.
