On its surface Skellig Michael reads like a fast-paced international thriller involving crimes in high office, terrorism threats, espionage, corporate takeover battles, sex, lust, poignant romance, chase scenes, and shootouts. But readers who probe deeper may find the novel more provocative and complex than they initially thought. And in the end they may decide—as the protagonists themselves do—that the rocky landscape of the novel is a metaphor for life.

The popularity of the Camino de Santiago has prompted renewed interest in pilgrim walks in Ireland. Our ancient network of sacred paths means there is no need to travel abroad to enjoy symbolic trails in the footsteps of generations past. Increasing numbers now follow ancient routes through captivating Irish scenery to such holy places as Glencolumbkille, Croagh Patrick, Lough Derg and Glendalough. John G. O'Dwyer has walked these pilgrim trails, from Slieve Mish in the northeast, where Christianity may have had its first dawning in Ireland, to Skellig Michael in the southwest, where the known world once ended. His well-received guide is now updated with five additional journeys of homage, including Kerry's Cnoc na dTobar and Wicklow's St Declan's Way. Each walk includes clear directions, the degree of difficulty, estimated time and a map. The paths are varied and suit a range of abilities, from casual ramblers to committed walkers.Whatever your beliefs, enjoy a sublime escape from the present with an outdoor experience that reaches unbroken from time immemorial.
