OLD IRELAND IN COLOUR3 JOHN BRESLIN & SARAH-ANNE BUCKLEY
Often imitated but never equalled, John Breslin and Sarah-Anne Buckley are back with the third instalment of their bestselling Old Ireland in Colour series.
Beloved by Irish readers at home and abroad, for this new volume the authors have uncovered yet more extraordinary photographic gems and breathed new life into them in glorious colour. All of Irish life is here – from an eviction in Clare in 1888 to devastating floods in Strabane and a snapshot of working life in 1950s Dublin. Famous faces from politics and the arts appear alongside hard-working labourers and farmers, and mischievous children from all corners of the island light up this book’s glorious pages.
With endless surprising details to pore over in every picture, along with illuminating captions, Old Ireland in Colour 3 is a stunning addition to this wonderful series of unique books.
