When I Was Your Age: Ireland’s Grandparents Share Memories and Wisdom

by Valerie Cox | 13 October 2022
Hardback

What was life like for Ireland’s grandparents when they were young?

What has changed for the better? What values would a grandparent wish to hand down?

In these pages, grandmother and chronicler of times past Valerie Cox talks to fellow grandparents, creating an unforgettable trip down memory lane. Through schooldays, dating, jiving, child-rearing, working life, holidays, fashions, taboos and dramas, memories are shared of a pre-digital age when the world seemed smaller, social mores were more stringent and community life was central.

Full of tender or surprising reminiscences from across Ireland, along with revelations on what truly matters in life, this beautiful hardback gift book – featuring contributions from some of Ireland’s best known grandparents – is a collective heirloom, a time capsule for the future.
