The unique farming heritage of the Burren has been the subject of many scientific papers, but for the first time, it has inspired a children’s story, written from the first-hand experiences of a Burren farmer, Shane Casey and illustrated by renowned wildlife artist Gordon D’Arcy.
The story begins at Blackhead, when Sarah, a young shorthorn calf, is born. Shortly after, she moves across to the Caher Valley where she has a chance encounter with a cuckoo. The cuckoo, Colin, has come all the way from Southern Africa to see the Burren flowers at Blackhead. But Sarah has never heard of them! How could it be possible that she has never seen or heard of the one thing the Burren is most famous for – its flowers.
Shane is the author of four other children’s books about Irish wildlife – see www.shanecaseybooks.ieAll proceeds from the sale of this book will go towards the vital education work of the local landscape charity Burrenbeo Trust. The price includes delivery and postage to anywhere in the Republic of Ireland and the UK. For deliveries outside of these regions please email us at
