Abstract:
This is a record of a journey along Ireland’s border and a portrait of its landscape and its history. I follow the line closely, no matter where it brings me. Where I cannot walk I use a canoe. At night I camp out on the land. I visit architecture on the border, forts and dykes as well as defensive building of the Troubles. The ways in which we control land is a preoccupation of The Rule of the Land. I also speak to people who live on the frontier and attempt to discover what a border culture might entail. I want to get under the borderline symbol on the map and find out what is actually happening on the ground. The Rule of the Land charts the border in inventive ways, with my own maps and photographs as well as text. The Rule of the Land may be of interest to readers of creative non-fiction, psychogeography, nature writing, travel writing and Irish history and culture.
