Before the 1970s flipped the switch to colour, Irish children were raised in a world of black, white and an awful lot of grey. But kids, being kids, found endless ways to have fun. Damian Corless takes us on a tongue-in-cheek trip down memory lane to the age of Daithí Lacha, instant mashed potato, Drill Displays and holidays in Butlin's Mosney. Set against a backdrop of the Golden Jubilee of the Easter Rising and the introduction of free secondary education, this is a delightful celebration of the days we thought would never end (and some we're glad are gone).

Funny, quirky, affectionate.
