The Rock of Achill, Jim Sheehan

An Irish tale you’ve never been told.

As the last days of mythical Ireland draw to a close, experience the collision of the magical and early-nineteenth-century worlds. On a mission to secure the funds to recover his family land, Donn, an adolescent boy, joins a crew including Irish knights and escaped rebels as they set sail to restore an ancient kingdom. He leaves his new love, Bridget, behind on Achill Island, hoping that he can return to her a propertied gentleman and ask for her hand in marriage. Will Bridget wait for him or marry another? During his travels, the newly knighted Donn faces legendary creatures trying to prevent the recovery of the lost treasures of the Tuatha de Danann.

Through foamy seas, holy knights of a former age sail for glory and God. In the chaotic time of Europe’s struggle for liberty, during the Napoleonic age, find these Irish rebels cutting through Barbary pirates and faerie guardians alike. When on land, they ride their horses, noble of spirit, past the perils that lie in wait. Will Donn, after years of high adventure, return to his beloved and reclaim his family land?
