Ó Chósta go Cósta

Winner of the Irish-language 'Book of the Year' award, Gradam Uí Shuilleabháin in 2010.

In 1994 the army officer, Frank Reidy was sent to eastern Africa to assist the United Nations effort that was assembled to deal with the humanitarian crisis caused by genocide in Rwanda. In this book the author returns to eastern Africa, hoping to see another side of the continent.


In this travel diary, Frank Reidy writes about his journey as he sails around the Kenyan coast in a traditional dhow, visits Barack Obama’s grandmother, and learns about the country’s complicated and tragic history. He goes on safari in the Maasai Mara national park. He visits Uganda to see how Irish Governmental aid has helped that country. And he returns to Rwanda to see how they are progressing in the years following genocide.

This is a travel book, a history book, a source of information and a book of politics.
