'Ireland's natural heritage is being steadily whittled away by human exploitation, pollution and other aspects of modern development. This could represent a serious loss to the nation.'Irish Government Report, 1969This urgent call for intervention to prevent the loss of our natural heritage is taken from a government report published in June 1969. Since then, nature in Ireland has continued to disappear at an alarming rate. Overfishing, industrial-scale farming and pollution have decimated wildlife habitats and populations. In a single lifetime, vast shoals of herring, rivers bursting with salmon, and bogs alive with flocks of curlew and geese have all become folk memories. Coastal and rural communities are struggling to survive; the foundations of our tourism and agricultural sectors are being undermined. The lack of political engagement frequently sees the state in the European Court of Justice for breaches of environmental law.Pádraic Fogarty authoritatively charts how this grim failure to manage our natural resources has impoverished our country. But all is not lost: he also reveals the possibilities for the future, describing how we can fill our seas with fish, farm in tune with nature, and create forests that benefit both people and wildlife. He calls for the return of long-lost species like wild boar, cranes and wolves, showing how nature and wildlife can recover hand in hand. Prioritising the natural world will benefit our health, wellbeing and livelihoods. A provocative call to arms, Whittled Away presents an alternative path that could lead us all to a brighter future.

In ancient Ireland there were 365 different body parts, and a different plant to cure each part. So Ireland's wild plants have been part of our culture and folklore from the earliest times, featuring in the Brehon Laws, early Irish poetry and herbal medicine. To carry a four-leaved shamrock brings luck in gambling, putting nine ivy-leaves under her pillow means a girl will dream of her future husband. Here the plants are described in seasonal order, the perspective of our ancestors. Different aspects of plant folklore are examined: their roles in magical protection, in charms and spells (especially for love!), as emblems in children's games, in Irish place names, and folklore cures.
