The Outer Edge of Ulster: A Memoir of Social Life in Nineteenth-Century Donegal

University Of Notre Dame Press, 2001. Paperback. New in original cellophane wrapper. Softcovers. In 1889 Hugh Dorian, a writing-clerk, wrote "a true narrative" of the transformation of his home community in Ireland in the 19th century. Though he never specifically named that community, it is now known to have been the Fanaid peninsula nn the Atlantic Coast notrh of Donegal. Dorian paints a picture of everyday life--births, deaths, marriages, schools, the poitin industry, donkey races, as well as social structure; he goes on to write about the Great Famine and thye "mournful silence" that followed in its wake.
