Against the Wind


By Caitríona Nic Ghiollaphádraig

This is a story on two levels. Firstly it is a description of the 2670km cycle Caitríona took from Moville, Co. Donegal to Kinsale, Co. Cork on the Wild Atlantic Way in 2017 during the wettest and windiest August/ September since records began!

Secondly, it is a searingly honest account of the mental and emotional journey. Doubt had called to visit Caitríona shortly before the cycle through a personally distressing incident which coloured the trip in a way that was to open her up to loneliness and the question of what it means to belong.
