‘An Irish Childhood’ by Mary McCann
Mary McCann invites the reader into the memories of her northern Irish childhood. Mary’s story is a rich depiction of deprived and troubled life in early twentieth century Northern Ireland. Filled with personal trials and struggles, Mary tells the story of how her impoverished life led her to cross the channel, overcome adversity and forge a successful and warm life of her own.
This is a very real, raw account of one woman’s struggle in a large, poor, rural Irish family.
