Informative but wistful look at Irish country life as it used to be around 100 years ago, with a few more recent photos included. Although many are not located, probably most were taken in the west. The photos cover a range of everyday country occupations, events and pursuits and each photo has an explanatory caption. This small book is packed with pictures and information and the photos include fishwives, gathering gorse, donkey carts, pony & trap, plucking fowl, going to market, bringing home the turf, killing the pig, peasants cabins,farmyard, the village pump, evictions, spinning wheels and spinning industry, handloom weaving, turf harvesting and stacking, washing day, coracles and currachs, the fish market, seaweed harvesting, turnip harvesting, digging potatoes, milking the cow, pig fairs, butter market, and thatching.
