The third instalment in the hugely successful, bestselling Vanishing Ireland series - another invaluable chronicle of a disappearing Ireland.
In Vanishing Ireland: Recollections of our Changing Times, the third book in the bestselling Vanishing Ireland series, bestselling author Turtle Bunbury and award-winning photographer James Fennell, once again, travel the length and breadth of the country talking to the people of Ireland who share with them their memories of ways and traditions of Irish life.
Through their own words and memories, men and women from every corner of Ireland transport us through the years, back to a time when life was simpler, when the emphasis was on the community, family life, tradition and a sense of national identity. Through a unique collection of stunningly evocative portrait and landscape photographs, and moving personal interviews we are reminded of our culture and are given a first hand account of an Ireland that is almost unrecognisable in today's world.
Vanishing Ireland: Recollections of our Changing Times brings together the stories of those who lived through Ireland's formative years. These poignant interviews and photographs will make you laugh and cry but, above all, will provide a valuable chronicle that connects twenty-first century Ireland to a rapidly disappearing world.
