From an Irish Market Town"From an Irish Market Town, although essentially an autobiography, is also a very human story that touches on people's lives for close on eighty years in an era that brought such advances in medicine, science and technology as to increase life expectancy by twenty to thirty years. The period that started out with the horse and buggy, steam engines and a very elementary motor car has witnessed the coming of jet planes, space travel, high-speed trains and luxury automobiles. Thanks to television and the mass media, especially paperback books, computers and the Internet, people have achieved more than sufficient knowledge to cope with the general ups and downs of everyday life.

The title of the book would suggest that the origins of the story are in Ireland. But the reader will soon discover that the Manhattan district of New York City holds the clue to the real beginnings and but for happenings there this tale would never have surfaced." Read more >>
