qqOf Other Daysqq is an account of a rural childhood spent in post World War II Ireland during the 1940's and 1950's. Portrayed against the backdrop of Tara, Navan, and The Boyne Valley, the author relates his recollections of growing up in County Meath, Ireland during an age of relative innocence and simplicity. Comprised of 85 tales of varying lengths, the many different aspects of life in the Irish countryside during these years are explored in detail, reflecting an Ireland which now, just over half a century later in the new millennium, has well and truly vanished. Originally available locally and launched in County Meath in a limited signed numbered edition of 200 copies, qqOf Other Daysqq is now also available in this second edition.
