Discover a time when people were much more tuned into the rhythm of the year and the ground beneath their feet, when they made much of their own furniture and clothes, and fed themselves from their own land. An exploration of Irish rural life before electricity and industry changed everything.

The O'Brien Irish Heritage Series

In a fast-paced, modern Ireland it can be difficult to imagine how different our lives are to those that went before. In this book Olive Sharkey lovingly describes the lives, activities and material possessions of irish people living between 1800 and the 1930s. The implements of the home, the farm, the garden and home-crafts are recounted, with detailed drawings and photographs. These once familiar objects - bittles, butterworkers, noggins and truckle beds - are explored, as we are shown a lifestyle where people made much of their own furniture and clothes, and fed themselves from their own land. Based on Olive Sharkey's Ways of Old, this new addition to the O'Brien 'Heritage Series' will draws the reader back to a time when people were much more tuned into the rhythm of the year and the ground beneath their feet.
