No Flowers on a Sailor's Grave - Shipwrecks of Kinsale & Courtmacsherry

No Flowers on a Sailor's Grave by Jerome Lordan reminds us of the many long forgotten shipwrecks along this most beautiful of coastlines.

It brings to life, in seaman's terms, the precarious nature of the sea, particularly in the time of sail.

Jerome Lordan's family have lived for generations at the Old Head of Kinsale. He worked as a commercial fisherman for 28 years and has been owner of Kinsale Harbour Cruises since 2003. After studying Heritage Management at Coláiste Stiofán Naofa, Cork, Jerome completed at B.A. in Archaeology, and Celtic Civilisation at University College Cork, where he was awarded an M.A. in Local History with First Class HOnours in 2012 for his thesis on the local placenames of the Old Head. His work is inspired by his deep love of place and his knowledge of local topography, folklore and oral tradition.
