Summary

As a veteran traveller, Pete McCarthy has long been intrigued that the emigrant Irish can be found in all corners of the globe. Determined to pin down mythical tales of his own clan history, Pete is thrust into a world-wide adventure that reveals an unsettled and poignant history, while unearthing a good pint in the most unexpected locations.
From the Holy Ground of Cork harbour, he travels to Gibraltar and Morocco, then onwards to New York, Tasmania, Montana, and the tiny Caribbean island of Montserrat, before finally reaching the remote Alaskan township of McCarthy, with its population of just 14 people and a lot more bears.

Entertaining and interesting too.

I wondered, at the beginning, if I might be too quickly bored by someone's pursuit of the McCarthy line(s). But, I think that was the MacGuffin. The entertainment is in the sidetracking. Great.
