Item description for Sport In Ireland - With Notes And Prose Idyls On Shooting And Trout Fishing by W. Barry...
SPORT IN IRELAND WITH NOTES AND PROSE IDYLS ON SHOOTING AND TROUT FISHING. By W. Barry. This scarce book was first published under the title "Moorland and Stream," in London 1871. Relatively few books have been penned dealing with early field sports in Ireland. This fascinating volume helps fill that gap. The author writes from his own memorable experiences with gun and rod across the wilder parts of the "Emerald Isle." His words bring to life the sport and sporting characters encountered during his adventures on Irish moorland and water. READ COUNTRY BOOKS has now re-published this compelling title using the original text. The book's 300+ pages contain 22 detailed chapters describing the author's various experiences whilst Cock Shooting, Grouse Shooting, Wildfowling, Partridge Shooting, Snipe Shooting, Plover Shooting, Trout Fishing etc. Irish rural life, its characters and the inevitable "craic" are much in evidence throughout. This unusual historical record of 19th century Irish field sports is recommended for a place on every true sportsman's bookshelf. Many of the earliest sporting books, particularly those dating back to the 1800s, are now extremely scarce and very expensive. READ COUNTRY BOOKS are reprinting these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions. These editions are republished using the original text and artwork.
