Inland solicitor takes to the high seas around Ireland

Birr solicitor and arbitrator Richard Kennedy has written the story of his leisurely sailing voyage around the coastline of Ireland.

Round Ireland by Slow Boat was described by Fergal Keane on RTÉ Radio 1’s Seascapes programme as an entertaining and engaging read.


The book charts the adventures and misadventures of Richard and his wife Rita as they undertake a five-month circumnavigation of Ireland.

Their yacht Seachrán set sail from Rossaveal harbour in Connemara and took in the stark shorelines of Mayo and Donegal, and the gentle coastlines of the eastern seaboard, onwards to the sweeping vistas of the south.


The five-month odyssey was undertaken over two recent summers.

Round Ireland by Slow Boat is available in bookshops, including Charlie Byrne's Bookshop (Galway), The Bookshop (Westport, Co Mayo), Village Bookshop (Terenure, Dublin), and the Midlands Bookshop (Tullamore, Co Offaly).

The book can also be downloaded on Kindle, or ordered online through http://roundirelandbyslowboat.net/
