The second volume in Tim Robinson's phenomenal Connemara Trilogy - which Robert Macfarlane has called 'One of the most remarkable non-fiction projects undertaken in English'. The first volume of Tim Robinson's Connemara trilogy, Listening to the Wind, covered Robinson's home territory of Roundstone and environs. The Last Pool of Darkness moves into wilder territory: the fjords, cliffs, hills and islands of north-west Connemara, a place that Wittgenstein, who lived on his own in a cottage there for a time, called 'the last pool of darkness in Europe'. Again combining his polymathic knowledge of Connemara's natural history, human history, folklore and topography with his own unsurpassable artistry as a writer, Tim Robinson has produced another classic. A native of Yorkshire, Tim Robinson moved to the Aran Islands in 1972. His books include the celebrated two-volume Stones of Aran. Since 1984 he has lived in Roundstone, Connemara. 'A masterpiece of travel and topographical writing and a miraculous, vivid and engrossing meditation on landscape and history and the sacred mood of places' Colm Tóibín, Irish Times

An account of a journey through western Ireland made in 1984, fulfilling a childhood dream of a long-distance ride. The story centres on the growing bond between the author and her Connemara pony, Mollie and the many challenges that they face before the tragic conclusion in the mountains of Kerry. It is also a portrait of rural Ireland before the "Celtic Tiger" era, built up from conversations with the local people. The journey takes them through Counties Galway, Mayo, Clare and Kerry, the obstacles to their progress ranging from bogs, stone walls, and the River Shannon. "I've never tried hitchhiking with a horse before" comments the author. "It's not easy." She travelled with no set route, extending her backpacking knowledge acquired in the Andes to horse packing, "seeing the obvious advantage of climbing mountains on someone else's legs and using another's back for the packing."

"The Connemara Connection" is a novel of suspense. The setting is the west coast of Ireland, the Connemara peninsula, in the early 1990's. Charley Gibson, a young CIA agent, is sent there to try and find how, and by whom, the IRA are smuggling explosives into Northern Ireland. It is suspected that an American girl is involved in bringing financial support. Therefore the involvement of our Central Intelligence. The book opens introducing us to a group of IRA members as they plan the transfer of bomb material from a Libyan freighter off the coast of Connemara. they are Wolfe Morrison, his wife Sheila, her brother Sean and the leader, Ben. Wolfe is an idealist, committed to the dream of freedom, and Sheila is undyingly loyal to him and to the cause. Sean is a young man twisted by hate and Ben is a fierce and desperate veteran of the Irish struggles. It develops that their plan involves not only the smuggling, but the kidnapping of the Queen while she is making a secret visit with her husband to an isolated fishing lodge deep in Connemara. Their plan is to send one of their members, Kevin, to go with the American fiel, Bettina, as tourists taking a horseback trek across the mountains from Clifden on the west to Galway and then into the North. While under this cover, they will pick up the stuff and carry it over to Galway, seemingly two tourists taking the trek for recreation.
