'An incredible portal to our past' The Sunday Times

On 7 January 1922, Ireland became a free state. Born into that era of turbulence and hope were the twenty-six women and men whose stories and memories of a lifetime are captured by cherished Irish journalist Valerie Cox.

From living memory come stories of the arrival of electricity, story-telling at 'rambling houses', raising a family in an earlier era, the scourge of TB, the big snow of 1932 and hiding out when the Black and Tans raided. These evocative pieces reflect both a simpler time and a tougher one, where childhood was short and the world of work beckoned from an early age.

Growing Up With Ireland is a compelling portrait of an Ireland in some ways warmly familiar, and in others changed beyond recognition, from those who were there at the beginning.

Dublin Moving East
In the thousand years of Dublin history no period of expansion comes anywhere near that of the period 1708–1844 when the city more than doubled in size. All of this activity was triggered and continued to be driven during the entire period by the actions of the port authorities known as The Ballast Board and, after 1786, The Corporation for the preservation and improvement of the port of Dublin.
