Meet the true Blackie O'Neill
Thirteen-year-old Blackie O’Neill faces an uncertain future in rural County Kerry. Orphaned and alone, he has just buried his sister, Bronagh, and must leave his home to set sail for England, in search of a better life with his mother’s brother in Leeds. There, he learns his trade as a navvy, amid the grand buildings and engineering triumphs of one of England’s most prosperous cities, and starts to dream of greater things... And then, high on the Yorkshire moors, in the mists of a winter morning he meets a kitchen maid called Emma Harte.
The true Blackie O'Neill is revealed: his tumultuous life, the obstacles facing him, the desire he has to throw off the impotence of poverty and move up in the world.
