About the Author

Trevor Simpson is a retired seafisherman. Born in England, he fished out of Newquay in Cornwall until 1967, when he moved to Ireland. He has lived and worked in Dunmore East, Co. Waterford for the last 50 years. As well as fishing, he has written two volumes of memoir and has also contributed poetry and verse to various anthologies.

Diary of a Cornish Fisherman
Volume I in the Cornish Fisherman's Diaries series

Available to browse and buy online in print and e-book editions
The second instalment in the Cornish Fisherman's Diaries series by Trevor Simpson takes up exactly where volume one (Diary of a Cornish Fisherman: Newquay, 1962-1967 – also available to buy online) left off. The author makes landfall in Dunmore East, on Ireland’s south-east coast, following a pulsating journey across the Irish Sea.

I had been staring into a white wall of fog for many hours. I steered my boat, the 35ft M.F.V Reaper, by her compass. The fog was doing my head in and I fought the pressing urge to sleep. Knowing that I should have made landfall quite a while back proved to me that I was lost, lost in unfamiliar waters. I desperately needed to find a safe harbour before dark …

What awaits the author upon disembarking; what he makes of this strange new world called Ireland (and what Ireland makes of him) is the subject of a memoir that is as warm and engaging as the first. The years that follow would prove challenging, perplexing, refreshing and ultimately rewarding. The fact that he found himself in a place that he was pleased to call home for the next fifty years (and beyond) probably speaks for itself. There is more to the story than that, however.
