the wild rover 

The autobiography of Tomas O Cinneide 

Translated by Padraig Tyers

Mercier Press

Well we all have one book in us and this is Tomas O Cineides one. His life story Begins with the pure poverty which so many people were born into over a century ago. It doesn’t get much better as he travels from west Kerry throughout Ireland and on to the states.

Disaster is never far away.  This has no ebb and flow, no happy ending just a tale of his life, it could be any one of us only our era has so much more material belongings available to people.
