About the Book

Used Book. Paperback. Excellent condition

-- from the back

In 1906 Margaret “Maggie” Welsh was born at Islandmagee, in a ‘humble thatched cottage’, just a stone’s throw from the spectacular Gobbins cliffs.

The fifth of seven children, she grew up during the heyday of the famous “Gobbins Cliff Path’, built in 1902 by Berkeley Dean Wise. Her mother Agnes ran a tearoom there for the many visitors.

Margaret McBride, as she became, wrote ‘Green Pastures’ for her grandchildren in the 1960s, recalling her vivid memories of family, friends, neighbours, life and death, in Islandmagee a century ago. Today it provides a fascinating and valuable glimpse of a bygone era.
