New Book by Maurice Curtis

INDEPENDENT IRELAND 1922-1992: Raised on Songs and Stories

This latest book from historian, novelist and long-time Haroldonian, Maurice Curtis, is a social, personal and cultural celebration of Ireland in the twentieth century. It is also an exploration of some of the key themes in modern Irish history as seen through the lens and prism of music, song, dance and story. Consequently, we will re-discover many of the soundtracks of music that defined, reflected, shaped and influenced twentieth-century Irish life, heritage, culture, destiny and identity.

The book is available from Amazon and all good bookshops.
