Description

A Place I Called Home is a memoir by Kevin Haugh of his childhood in the Loop Head Peninsula in County Clare from the late 1950s to the mid-1970s. It illustrates many of the social norms of that time, and shows how religion and immigration had an impact on both his life and the lives of those in the wider community. He shares a treasury of memories and tales handed down to him by the older generation, along with some salient nuggets of local history, social life and work on the land.

Kevin’s affinity with his native place and its people is encapsulated in his own words: “The beauty of the landscape and the power of the sea in the Loop Head Peninsula are to be found in the souls of the people there.”
