The Irish Continent

The Irish Continent

By Michael Lynch



In The Irish Continent Michael Lynch explores the little-known Irish roots to be found all across South America. A short holiday turns into a seven-month extended stay as he digs deeper into this unexpected heritage. Along the way he almost gets caught up in a riot in Santiago, experiences a football match in Buenos Aires, takes a day-long trip across the desert from Asunción to Santa Cruz, and meets an elderly Argentinian woman who speaks with a curiously Irish accent. This entertaining travelogue, touching on an unsung part of Irish history, reveals a very personal connection to South America and looks at the continent through fresh eyes.
