Boreen is an actual road, near Westport, Co. Mayo in Ireland. Locally, it is known as ‘Ballyburke Boreen' and is situated in the countryside village of Killawalla.
The word ‘Boreen', is an Irish word meaning ‘small road' or ‘laneway'.
The road is peppered with sights and sounds, twists and turns, seasons and sunshine, hills and hollows, lazy landscapes and loitering wildlife, old ruins and new growth, Fairy Forts, meandering rivers, romantic bridges, ‘Famine House', Famine Burial grounds.
Boreen, the old woman of the road, invites the reader to join her as she shares her own often painful history, her special moments as well as her centuries old wisdom and guidance.
In sharing the richness of her own life, Boreen hopes that her readers will value and appreciate the many lessons they have learned on their own journey.
