Got to read ‘Steelmaking and stories from Haulbowline’ by Jim Shealy this week.
A really great book capturing the stories of generations of hard working men & women who made a life for themselves and their families from working on Haulbowline in Irish Steel. The extensive use of oral history adds, as always, an element which often never makes it into the bigger histories, the colourful element which shows what life and work was like, over decades of heavy industry, through the eyes of those that lived it.
Stocked Cobh Gifts by Colm Mc Donagh Photography, and signed by the author. Not to be missed.
