The Parting Glass is an inviting ramble through forty-three traditional pubs in the cities and countryside of Ireland. Some are historic taverns, others are more contemporary, but all convey the timeless feel and the flavour of the country. Roth's glowing, intimate photographs are accompanied by narratives of the places and their patrons by columnist Eileen McNamara, as well as a sprinkling of quotations.
