finished reading In search of Ireland by H. V. Morton

H. V. Morton: In search of Ireland (1930, Methuen) 3 stars

I stumbled on another of H.V. Morton's books a few years ago and enjoyed his style, so picked this up in a second-hand shop when I saw it. Although written almost a hundred years ago the language is very readable, not noticeably "old", while the places and people that he described are clearly from another age - and he is often remaking that he's seeing the last of "an old way of life" as modern transport and communications comes more strongly into play, mixing and changing society
