Ways of Old
Traditional Life in Ireland
In a fast-paced, modern Ireland it can be difficult to imagine the daily lives
of our nineteenth-century predecessors. However, in this
book Olive Sharkey reconciles past and present with evocative
descriptions of the lives, activities and material possessions
of Irish people living between 1800 and the 1930s. The
implements of the home, the farm, the garden and for home-crafts
are recounted, with hundreds of detailed drawings in the
authentic folk art style. These once familiar objects -
bittles, butterworkers, noggins and truckle beds - are
looked at anew in the context of the people who used them
and depended on them for their livelihood.
