Don Scanlan, a former lighthouse keeper, recalls the unique way of life on his native Scattery Island, County Clare, during the 1920s, 30s and 40s.

He describes the traditions and customs of this island community and their work on land and at sea. In a chapter by Fidelma Mullane the island's dwelling houses and their associated folklore are examined, while Bríd O'Mahony recounts the history of the primary school and its teachers.

Don Scanlan concludes with a fascinating outline of his life with the lighthouse service around the Irish coast. The publication contains many photographs of Scattery Island families.
