All About Home Economics

Deirdre Madden

All About Home Economics was first published in 1983 but remains relevant and popular today. It was the seminal text for intermediate certificate Home Economics for over 15 years.

The author, Deirdre Madden, was a Home Economics teacher in Loreto Abbey Dalkey. Her energy and enthusiasm for teaching her students was boundless. Her frustration at the lack of a modern Irish Home Economics inter cert book resulted in her writing her own.

She often quoted a much loved fairy tale - "I'll do it myself said the little red hen; and so she did." All About Home Economics is the result of passion for a subject that Deirdre felt was truly important to students - life skills. Deirdre wrote many textbooks for inter, junior and leaving certificate some of which have been updated by Lorna Freebourne and are still being used in classrooms throughout the country today.

  • How to cook the perfect roast
