These time-capsule recollections of Trinity College students in the seventies include those of U2 manager Paul McGuinness, director of the Gate Theatre Michael Colgan, Dillie Keane of Fascinating Aida, Mary Harney, Liz O’Donnell and others, who have in different ways shaped the Ireland of today.

Back cover slightly marked.

The seventies were significant, with Catholic students allowed into Trinity College Dublin as British grants enabled a welcome invasion by the Northern Irish; post-Woodstock, a global counterculture was at work.

Together, Irish nationals and expats created an interesting fusion of sensibilities, styles and philosophies. As the decade of political and social upheaval unfolded - from the availability of the pill to the horrors of Bloody Sunday and the Dublin bombings - Irish youth came to embrace a changed Ireland.

Buoyed by idealism and other substances but tethered by pragmatism, contributors to Trinity Tales mirror a time when everything felt possible. 'Besides a rich tranche of Irish social history, this is a record of enthusiasm, joie de vivre, high-octane nostalgia... [a] cornucopia of perceptive, suggestive, often hilarious memories' -Ray Foster, The Irish Times
