Finding My Wild: How a Move to the Edge Brought Me Home by Kathy Donaghy


‘Life had brought me to the edge of myself and here I was feeling like I was on the edge of the world.’

After moving back to her homeplace on the Inishowen Peninsula in Donegal with her young family, journalist Kathy Donaghy’s life changed in ways she never saw coming. This unflinching memoir looks back at a decade of love and loss, of mothering, identity and ultimately healing. An ode to friendship, home and the extraordinary healing powers of immersing yourself in the natural world, especially the ocean.


'Utterly beautiful memoir' -- Andrea Carter

'A heartbeat of a book … that will speak to so many' -- Ruth Fitzmaurice, author of I Found My Tribe

'Kathy Donaghy shares her cache of wisdom about a pared-back life enriched by the countryside’s treasure trove. Her beautifully told chronicle is a testament to outcomes transformed by a leap of faith. -- Martina Devlin

'An honest but beautiful account of losing yourself through life’s tragedies and finding yourself again in the wilds of your beloved homeland' -- Niamh Fitzpatrick, author of Tell Me the Truth About Loss
