|Plot Summary of McCarthy's Bar|
|"The historical relationship between Britain (or more specifically England) and Ireland can make life difficult for those people born in England but with Irish influences in their family.
Pete McCarthy is one such person and in McCarthy's Bar he attempts to unravel whether he is English, Irish or both.
Following the golden rule of travel - that he never passes a bar with his name on it - McCarthy does not aim to discuss his dilemma with scholars or academics. He talks about it with the man at the bar or the woman whose Bed & Breakfast he is staying in.
Alex Wolstenholme, Resident Scholar
