Irish Women Speak – Alison Wickham

Irish Women Speak: Clonakilty Women of the 20th Century is a collection of true life stories from more than 36 women aged 35 to 95, from the small town and hinterlands of Clonakilty, County Cork. The stories illuminate their everyday lives, including those of their mothers and sisters, via careers, life events, and thoughts, all of which were affected by the history, politics and economics of the time. These stories, which are seldom recorded despite universal resonance, come from the women themselves, in response to questions posed by Alison Wickham.
