Remembering Dervla Murphy

In the latest newsletter from the travel publisher Eland, Barnaby Rogerson remembers the writer Dervla Murphy, who died last May. “Like a cautious treasury minister”, he writes, she reserved money “for education and health, which were the two absolutes, plus beer and a roof over her head. Otherwise money could become a barrier, protecting you from full engagement with life, the one life, the only life, which should be lived well enough that you aspired to no other.”
