Tim Cunningham never disappoints. In his characteristically conversational style, his is a voice that speaks to us all, and speaks for us all, whatever his subject. We share his world: his love of Ireland and her history, as well as his own past; we are moved by all its warmth and honesty, its deep feeling, its startling wit and rare innocence.
