Adult Non-fiction, Book reviews and recommendations

Irish Country Life

Author: Olive Sharkey                                 

Genre: Non-fiction                                       

Reviewed by Elaine Patterson, Newbridge Branch/Headquarters               

Age Range: Adult

This short book focuses on an overview of country life during the 1800s to 1930s, and on the everyday crafts used during that time period. The book contains many detailed illustrations and photographs of common tools and vessels used during the era. Engaging and informative, this is a lovely look back at a now vanished time.  I would recommended it to those interested in Irish folk history.
