The Last of The Name
The life and times of Inishowenman Charles McGlinchey 1861 - 1954. Now out of print. Our last copy.
This is an astonishingly detailed tapestry of life in the north-west of Ireland on the Inishowen Peninsula.
It tells the story of Charles McGlinchey (1861-1954) who lived his entire life in Donegal. He never married, he outlived his brothers and sisters, none of whom left an heir. In the 1940s and '50s, McGlinchey would visit schoolmaster and friend, Patrick Kavanagh, to talk about his life and times ; and Kavanagh wrote it down.
Thirty years later Brian Friel edited the material to form this book.
