Published by Cork University Press, 1985, the theme of the collection of essays, is the sense of place, vague or precise, mundane or romantic, real or imaginary in the Irish mind, with reference both to place within Ireland, and to Ireland's place in the world. The contributors , concerned with psychic no less than physical space, seek to excavate the sense of place, as they probe various layers of perception, geographical, literary, ethical, legal, economic and political.
