    DescriptionCompletely revised, this is the second edition of the sea kayaking guidebook - Oileain, The Irish Islands. The guide describes 270 more islands than the previous edition, has a wealth of new photos, a new design and improved presentation of the tidal information. Dave Walsh describes over 570 islands. The essential information for kayakers or anyone in a small boat is here: landings, camping, drinking water and tidal information. Any wildlife to be found is detailed and on the islands that are or have been inhabited there is a wealth of information on their history and archaeology. The stories are fascinating and often told with a wry humour which makes them very readable. The book is illustrated throughout with colour photographs and maps. The writing and photographs capture the very essence of the wild places described.

    Author Information
    David Walsh is a Dublin solicitor and Notary Public, living and working in Ranelagh with his wife Sheila. On a sailing/climbing trip to Spitsbergen in 1990 he saw sea kayaks glide between icebergs in a remote frozen Magdalena Fjord. He was blown away, and the next part of his life began immediately. He bought a sea kayak within weeks of getting home, and kayaking has consumed his life ever since. Islands became David's focus. He was a founder member of Irish Sea Kayaking Association and held the position of Chairman from 1995 to 2003, relinquishing the post only to see to the publication of the initial Oileain.
