Ireland Unhinged

Thursday, March 17, 2011

Author David Monagan tells why he moved his family from Connecticut to Cork, Ireland, in 2000. He looks at the changes the economic boon has wreaked on the Irish countryside and what the future holds for the country now that the bubble has finally burst. In Ireland Unhinged, he gives an often funny account of his transplanted American family’s experiences in Ireland during the past boom-to-bust decade.
