In Search of Ireland free pdf Shortly after the declaration of the Irish Free State, H V Morton goes IN SEARCH OF IRELAND by motor-car and finds, amongst other things, a Norman village in Galway, lobster fishers, a shy girl in need of an apron in Connemara and a great many beds in which Michael Collins is said to have slept.
