Highway to heaven steers me down road of reflection

Last Friday, I set out in lashing rain from Baltimore to Bandon, to pick up a copy of Kieran Doyle's newly published, but already out of print, Behind the Wall, The Rise and Fall of Protestant Power and Culture in Bandon.
The trip takes me through Skibbereen, Leap, Rosscarbery and Clonakilty; places which prompt private reflections on past events you won't find in any tourist book.
But the first stretch, Baltimore to Skibbereen, while free of troubled memories, is fraught in modern ways.
