Description

For over fifty years Kevin C. Kearns trekked the rough-and-tumble streets of the heart of Dublin, hoping to record and preserve the city’s vanishing oral history. Armed only with a Sony tape recorder, he encountered ordinary people – street traders, dockers, factory workers, tram drivers, housewives and midwives, children and grandparents – who shared private stories of hardship, joy, sorrow, suffering, survival and triumph.

In Our Day is the culmination of a life’s work – a treasure trove bursting with whispers from the past – 450 vignettes, memories and recollections gathered to present an evocative, poignant portrait of a forgotten Dublin.

‘Those of us who know and love Dublin owe Kearns a huge debt.’ Roddy Doyle
