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.
