Ok…I am officially excited! I got an email from the “Donkeyman”, Kevin O’Hara, wonderful author of “Last of the Donkey Pilgrims.” If you haven’t read it, read it! It’s a story of his journey around the entire ring of Ireland at the end of the 1970’s. It’s the story of his growth as a person, his relationship with a wonderful donkey named Missy, a glimpse into Irish life at that time, and a wonderful picture of the warmth of the Irish people he encountered along the way. Yes, I just used the word “wonderful” four times, and that was intentional. 🙂
I wrote him to let him know how much I liked the book, and he wrote back graciously and asked for one of my CD’s. Super cool! So now I am happy, and wanted to share some of that bubbly over-enthusiasm with all of you. If you like Ireland, travel stories, donkeys of any kind, and good storytelling, you will love “Last of the Donkey Pilgrims” by Kevin O’Hara.
