A 1950s Irish Childhood : From Catapults to Communion Medals Paperback / softback


1950s Ireland was the age of De Valera and John Charles McQuaid.

It was the age before television, Vatican II, and home central heating.

A time when motor cars and public telephones had wind-up handles, when boys wore short trousers and girls wore ribbons, when nuns wore white bonnets and priests wore black hats in church. To the young people of today, the 1950s seem like another age.

But for those who played, learned and worked at this time, this era feels like just yesterday.

This delightful collection of memories will appeal to all who grew up in 1950s Ireland and will jog memories about all aspects of life as it was.
