Synopsis: Short-listed for the Bord Gais Energy Irish Published Book of the Year Award 2010, 'Vanishing Ireland - Further Chronicles of a Disappearing World' is the follow up to the best-selling, award-nominated 'Vanishing Ireland'. We take another journey into Ireland's past and, through a unique collection of portrait interviews, we look at the dying ways and traditions of Irish life. Illustrated with over a hundred evocative and stunning photographs, we meet the people and the customs that are fast becoming a distant memory. Through their own words and memories, men and women from every corner of Ireland transport us back to a simpler time when people lived off the land and the sea, and when music and storytelling were essential parts of life. 'Vanishing Ireland' brings together the stories of those who lived through Ireland's formative years. These poignant interviews and photographs provide a valuable chronicle that connects twenty-first century Ireland to a rapidly disappearing world.
