Days We Remember
By Deirdre Purcell
A book of all our memories.
In Ireland over the past forty years, we have had many days to remember. We have laughed and cried, cheered and changed as the country has become a major economy and multicultural nation.
In Days We Remember, Deirdre Purcell, using her own inimitable style has interviewed twenty-five people who embody our memory of some of those events.
Gay Byrne on the outcry when Ann Lovett died in a Marian garden in Granard, Ray Houghton on scoring that goal, Gill Bowler on the freedom of travelling to a sun holiday, Bertie Ahern on the Good Friday Agreement, while Bishop Magee recounts the Pope's visit to Ireland in 1979.
Days We Remember is a book of all our memories, looking at the events that have made us who we are today.
Deirdre Purcell was born and brought up in Dublin. Before turning to writing fiction, she lived through an eclectic set of careers, including acting, as a member of the permanent company of Ireland's National Theatre (The Abbey), and journalism for all media - for which she won Ireland's top awards.
