Rathcormick - A Childhood Recalled by Homan Potterton 2004

A book entitled Rathcormick - A Childhood Recalled by Homan Potterton in 2004, is set in 1950s rural Ireland in a place called Rathcormick, Kildalkey, in the county of Meath. It is an engaging tale of a large and happy family: a stern and domineering Papa, a warm and practical Mamma, their two daughters and six sons. For Homan, the youngest, life is a free-spirited awakening in an adult world of old-fashioned virtue and frugality. He recalls the moment that the day-old chicks arrived, holidays in Kilkee and the eight-mile trudge to school. But no boyhood lasts forever, and an abrupt turn of events signals an end to the idyll.

It is available from Amazon here.
