A Cornish Fisherman's Irish Diary by Trevor Simpson

The second instalment in the Cornish Fisherman's Diaries series by Trevor Simpson takes up exactly where volume one (Diary of a Cornish Fisherman: Newquay, 1962-1967 – also available to buy online) left off. The author makes landfall in Dunmore East, on Ireland’s south-east coast, following a pulsating journey across the Irish Sea.

I had been staring into a white wall of fog for many hours. I steered my boat, the 35ft M.F.V Reaper, by her compass. The fog was doing my head in and I fought the pressing urge to sleep. Knowing that I should have made landfall quite a while back proved to me that I was lost, lost in unfamiliar waters. I desperately needed to find a safe harbour before dark …

What awaits the author upon disembarking; what he makes of this strange new world called Ireland (and what Ireland makes of him) is the subject of a memoir that is as warm and engaging as the first. The years that follow would prove challenging, perplexing, refreshing and ultimately rewarding. The fact that he found himself in a place that he was pleased to call home for the next fifty years (and beyond) probably speaks for itself.

There is more to the story than that, however.
