A stylish companion to the rich literary landscape of Cork city and county, which is sure to sit comfortably in the back pocket of the curious traveller and Corkconian alike.

The spectacular scenic delights of Cork county and city are now complemented by a guide to the rich literary heritage of the area. Divided in an easy to follow manner by natural geographic regions, points of interest are introduced, and through careful selection by Mary Leland, illustrates how setting affect the writers and how the written word reverberates in the landscape.
