BeschreibungDrunken wakes, mistaken corpses, strongman competitions with mountain goats, and salmon poaching at midnight by the light of a torch while hiding from the police, are among the poignant and comic anecdotes littered throughout this honest, funny story. Such hilarious events are inevitable for the South African family that spends four years living in rural Ireland, rebuilding their dream stone cottage from scratch, dealing with meddling locals, and learning to appreciate the country folk's very strange antics.
