Climbing Slemish


Published, spring 2015: CLIMBING SLEMISH, by Dennis Kennedy. Originally published as Climbing Slemish: An Ulster Memoir in 2006, this revised edition includes family trees and photographs.

Climbing Slemish is a humorous and at times tragic account of four inter-connected Ulster families over more than a century. The book was originally intended to be a novel, a portrait of a small and often misunderstood minority in Ireland, the deeply religious, evangelical Protestant working class in rural and urban Ulster, generally unionist in outlook, but eschewing involvement in politics.

Paperback; 214 pages. (including 8 of b&w photos.)
