Ireland: Memories of our Childhood
Dedicated to the Irish mothers and fathers of the 1970s and 1980s
Ireland: Memories of our Childhood is a collection of fifty memory stories dedicated to the parents of the 1970s and 1980s. The stories shine a spotlight on special moments that we have shared with our mothers and fathers.
Our parents’ generation may have masked their true feelings and emotions, so let this compilation of memories be our generation’s way of unmasking our own feelings, and most important, let it be our way of saying “thank you” to the Irish mothers and fathers of today and forty years ago.
These vivid memories will send us all on a trip down memory lane. Some stories will make us laugh, others will make us cry, and who knows, they might even help us uncover our own lost, buried or hidden memories. But ultimately, they will unite us once again as sons, daughters, neighbours or friends who grew up in Ireland during that time of innocence and hope.
