    James MacIntyre(Author Illustrator) Gerard Dillon(Illustrator) George Campbell(Illustrator)
Artist James MacIntyre recalls a summer on the remote West Ireland island of Innishlacken with fellow artists Gerard Dillon and George Campbell. From the congested streets, tram cars and junk shops of early-1950s Belfast, the book tells the story of escape and newly discovered self. MacIntyre's lack of stamina when faced with a full night's drinking, his shyness when meeting Kate O'Brien and learning painting techniques from Dillon and Campbell, all point to his youth. But through the camaraderie, the laughter, arguments and Guinness, the thrill of departure and the quest for survival on the island, a lifetime of experience was learned in one short summer.

  • By Crawford on 4 July 2010

    This book was written and illustrated by Ulster artist James MacIntyre and includes only a very few examples of the work of his friends and fellow artists Gerard Dillon and George Campbell who were both dead long before the book was written. It is quite misleading to describe Dillon and Campbell as being co-illustrators. "Three Men on an Island" is entirely the work of James MacIntyre.

    Anybody who loves the west of Ireland and/or is interested in art would have a great time reading this account of the summer that James McIntyre, George Campbell and Gerard Dillon spent on a small island off the coast of Connemara near Roundstone. Campbell and Dillon were already dead by the time McIntyre wrote the book and it is a wonderful homage to friendship, artistic collaboration and island life on the edge of Europe.The book is illustrated with watercolours and black and white drawings throughout, with a few of the pictures as well that the artists produced on the island or in reference to the island.In a nutshell: Great present, very entertaining read. Money well spent.

    I know this artist who spent time on the Island in the South of Ireland. Delighted to finally have his book.
