It is the 1940s in rural Ireland. Tom Nestor is a young boy. Every week, he is sent on an errand to the nearby town of Rath. Tom sets out on this journey as if it were an adventure into the Wild West, and he is a cowboy. On his way, he meets a host of weird and wonderful characters, from Ned Wall, the farmer with half a face, to dear Miss Daisy, with her pony and elegant trap - a perfect lady. But times are changing fast, and the old ways are dying out. Driving With Daisy is a funny, moving and familiar story a of a rural Ireland long since passed.
