When Christopher Koch sets out on a journey through Ireland with
his friend the folksinger Brian Mooney, each is seeking an aspect
of the past. Mooney is returning to a country where he spent
much of his adult life, while two of Koch's great great
grandmothers came from Ireland to Van Diemen's Land: one of them
as a convict. Koch is looking for traces of the mid-nineteenth
century, the time of the Famine, which flung the ancestors of so
many Irish-Australians across the globe. What he finds,
between meetings in pubs with folk musicians and IRA supporters,
is modern Ireland. Greatly changed from the impoverished
country he visited in the 1950s, it's enjoying the boom of the
early twenty-first century, despite the unresolved struggle
in the North.
