The Outer Edge of Ulster
Hugh Dorian
Breandán Mac Suibhne
David Dickson The Lilliput Press in association with Donegal County Council.
ISBN 1 901866 14 9

Hugh Dorian (1834-1914) describes the ordinary and the everyday – births, deaths and marriages, hedge-schools and schoolmasters, the poitín industry and donkey races, local systems of land holding, the social position of craftsmen an musicians, and the personal and sectarian hatreds that shaped his childhood, And then he describes the extraordinary and the incomprehensible – the Great Famine and the ‘mournful silence’ the sense of communal bereavement, that followed in its wake. The lasting image is of people who had sat late into small hours debating politics in the ears before the light congregating now in silence, lacking words for their experience.

Written in English.
