Growing Up in Clare
by Colette Dwan
EUR19.99 ($22.39)
Set in the forties and fifties, Another Time portrays the simple pastimes and day-to-day happenings in what seems another era. The small town of Scariff in County Clare might have appeared sleepy on the outside, but a day never passed without some excitement. It is hard for us now to imagine what life was like before electricity, television and video. In this book Colette Dinan brings to life the pleasant, friendly and resourceful lifestyle that existed without these modern conveniences. Friends and neighbours played an important role and were seen as part of the extended family. Despite economic hardship and the uncertainty of the times, life seemed secure. There was time to listen, to play and to sit and dream in those days.
