Goodbye, My Irish Child is the story of one girl’s journey from the innocence of childhood to the harsher realities of life. Through her ability to rebound from trauma, she becomes able to embrace the gift of life and live each moment with wonder, to seize the joy of her imagination, where infinite possibilities lie. She is one of six children who, being raised without a television set, delve into their own creative spirits to find action and adventure in the rural West of Ireland during their summer holidays in 1980. The freedom to explore at will the surrounding countryside and coastline enables them to fully explore what nature has to offer and what they can create—and often results in a hilarious situation. As each adventure unfolds, the history, myths and folklore of western Ireland come alive through the eyes of a twelve-year-old girl.McCormack-Sheehan, Monica is the author of 'Goodbye My Irish Child', published 2004 under ISBN 9781413719895 and ISBN 1413719899.
