char: Walking Ireland's Ancient Pilgrim Paths, Darach MacDonald - 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. 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 . The result is a narrative that is at times uplifting and at times uncomfortable, but which is always engaging and honest. While there are pilgrimage prayers along the Tóchar as well as historical background on the places once revered throughout Christendom, there are also pints in pleasant pubs, a rich diversity of literary references, anecdotes and personal reflections on faith, morality and religious practice, which are offered in a spontaneous and unselfconscious spirit.

200 Challenging Walks in Britain and Ireland, Richard Gilbert - Includes the best walks on mountains, moors, hills, downs and along rugged coastal hill tops. "I have been delighted with the ideas the book gives. It is easy to navigate by region and the one line summaries at the top of each chapter indicate the map, start/finish, a distance and time for each route. The routes are truly challenging and I have rarely completed a full route mainly due to transport issues. However they have enabled me to plan routes in areas I would otherwise not have ventured into without someone's personal recommendation. I have always felt the descriptions and timing accurate for a person of above average fitness and an experienced mountain walker." Buyer Review. Published May 04.
