This book takes us on an intimate journey along the rocky road of change during the first century of Irelands ‘Two State Solution’ imposed after the War of Independence. It explores how we might be able to enjoy a more fruitful and fulfilling experience for the next part of the journey. The evolving landscape is viewed through the eyes on one family who were more active participants than observers of Ireland’s ‘growing pains’ sharing in the pride and passion of our people, while having to face the cold harsh winds of change, always about us.
