A book on the [b]Loftus Family [/b] and their role in Ireland since Sir Adam Loftus.  Warts and all.


Amazon/Kindle Version


Kobo Version


From the arrival of Adam Loftus in Dublin in 1560, Simon Loftus traces the story of his family, piecing together fragments of history and legend spanning 350 years of Irelandís history. The background is the colonial conquest of Ireland and the harsh confrontations of religious and national identity but the focus is close at hand, familial. The passions and eccentricities, the daily concerns and relationships of individuals in this Ascendancy family, over eleven generations, combine to form an enthralling memoir of shifting moods and viewpoints. This beautifully written book is a meditation on the nature of memory, set against the ancient landscape of Ireland, and shaped by experience and time. 'A heartfelt, witty prescription for a life worth aspiring to and genuinely well-written.í
