Cornerstones of Modern Irish Fishing

The changes experienced in the Irish fishing industry over the past sixty years rank amongst the greatest of any era. This book is a compilation of the memories and experiences of individual boat owners and skippers who put to sea during the ups and downs of a period that ensured a fishermans lot would never be the same again.
During his many visits to fishermen of yesteryear on coastal Ireland, Pat Nolan has listened to and noted the memories of men who contributed to the new order. They are men of courage, ambition, determination and astuteness who have exhibited multi-talented qualities in, perfecting fishing techniques, pitting their wits against the elements, and adhering to an ever-growing list of bureaucratic demands.
The book deals with the experiences, opinions, perceptions and occasional sadness encountered throughout this time.
