This is a guide to the magical soul of Celtic Christianity, written from the perspective of a struggling, ‘á la carte’ Irish Catholic, ‘who could best be described as a healthy sceptic in matters of belief’.

Tóchar ('Causeway') is a walking-pace travelogue through the country that was dubbed 'the Island of Saints and Scholars' long before the Celtic Tiger took up residence.

Set against the backdrop of spectacular scenery in every corner of Ireland, the book recounts the trials and tribulations of a modern-day pilgrim, who follows in the footsteps of the ancients along prescribed paths, which range from hikes of a few hours' duration to day-long treks and the three-day ordeal in St Patrick's Purgatory.

The result is a narrative that is at times uplifting and at times uncomfortable, but always engaging and honest.
