A Border Diary

(1995)
A non fiction book by

 
 
A remarkable picture of a unique territory at a rare moment in time - the Cavan / Monaghan / Fermanagh borderland during the filming of The Run of the Country (starring Albert Finney) before and after the IRA ceasefire of 31 August 1994.
Not just a conventional film diary, it is a record of the politics, characters and language of a paradise or wilderness, lost or about to be regained - a hilarious and always loving look at the people and places of the author's birthplace caught in the dreamy glare of a Hollywood shoot.
