The Calf & The Cuckoo -Children’s Book
A gorgeously illustrated children's book beautifully written from the first-hand experiences of a Burren farmer, Shane Casey and illustrated by renowned wildlife artist Gordon D’Arcy.
The story begins at Blackhead, when Sarah, a young shorthorn calf, is born. Shortly after, she moves across to the Caher Valley where she has a chance encounter with a cuckoo. The cuckoo, Colin, has come all the way from Southern Africa to see the Burren flowers at Blackhead. But Sarah has never heard of them! How could it be possible that she has never seen or heard of the one thing the Burren is most famous for – its flowers.
