Vanishing Ireland: Friendship and Community

8 Reviews

Rated 0

Photographs: collections, Prose: non-fiction, Social & cultural history, Local history

The new instalment in the hugely successful, bestselling Vanishing Ireland series which sees the authors travel Ireland and speak to communities, friends and neighbours in a society which is changing dramatically. Another invaluable chronicle of a disappearing Ireland.

In VANISHING IRELAND, award-winning photographer James Fennell and bestselling author Turtle Bunbury once again travel Ireland to bring us an extraordinary, powerful new collection of poignant interviews from ordinary men and women, communities, friends and neighbours throughout the land.

Sharing with us their memories of times past, through words and stunningly evocative photographs, we hear of some adversity and hardship but an overriding sense of identity and belonging in small communities and towns where people could rely on their neighbours.

We lose ourselves in a world where life was simpler, as stories are shared beside fires, over cups of tea and glasses of whiskey and over fences and hedges as we meet the people who have lived through times of change as the past comes alive through their words.
