St. Patrick’s Day Through Irish Eyes

Through Irish EyesIn honer of Saint Patrick’s Day Glitterati presented a selection of photographs from Through Irish Eyes:   A Visual Companion to Angela McCourt’s Ireland.

Through Irish Eyes adds a visual dimension to the Ireland that so many readers of Angeles Ashes – Frank McCourt’s luminous account of his Limerick childhood – have longed to know better. Photography of Limerick in the 1930s and 1940s offers witness to the Irish ways, its people and customs, its struggles and its small and hard wrought joys, coupled with the words of such Irish writers as Yeats, Morton and Thackeray.
