Hitching for Hope

A Journey into the Heart and Soul of Ireland

By Ruairí McKiernan
Narrated by Gary Furlong / 6 hours 2 minutes

A modern travel tale—part personal pilgrimage, part political quest—that captures the power of human resilience

"McKiernan sticks his thumb out, and somehow a healthy dose of humanity manages to roll up alongside him. . . . This book is a paean to nuance, decency and possibility."Colum McCann, National Book Award winner and New York Times bestselling author of Let the Great World Spin and Apeirogon

Following the collapse of Ireland’s Celtic Tiger economy, social activist Ruairí McKiernan questions whether he should join the mounting number of emigrants searching for greater opportunity elsewhere. McKiernan embarks on a hitchhiking odyssey with no money, no itinerary and no idea where he might end up each night. His mission: to give voice to those emerging from one of the most painful periods of economic and social turmoil in Ireland’s history. Engaging, provocative and sincere, Hitching for Hope is a testimony to the spirit of Ireland. It is an inspirational manifesto for hope and healing in troubled times.
