Memories from an Irish Village School & Other Tales (Paperback)
Join Liam O' Caiside as he gives you a peek back into his small, rural Irish community in the 1950s and 60s. See what school life was like for those children, particularly those from poorer backgrounds, and how it was something to be dreaded and endured, rather than enjoyed.
But then see how the community was sustained by kinship, humour and music, and carried by the local eccentric characters who brightened up the grey days with their unique ways of life that are often unimaginable in our modern world.
The scars due to what the village children endured are everlasting, but the fond memories of those neighbours and characters that enriched O'Caiside's childhood have helped overshadow the dread. They have sustained him, and through his telling, he hopes to pass on their memory as well as never forget those who suffered under the harsh rule of the Master.
