Connemara: The Last Pool of Darkness

Connemara: The Last Pool of Darkness

Author(s): Tim Robinson

Location(s): Connemara

Genre(s): Travelogue

Era(s): Modern



The first volume of Tim Robinson’s Connemara trilogy, Listening to the Wind, covered Robinson’s home territory of Roundstone and environs. The Last Pool of Darkness moves into wilder territory: the fjords, cliffs, hills and islands of north-west Connemara, a place that Wittgenstein, who lived on his own in a cottage there for a time, called ‘the last pool of darkness in Europe’.
