In Our Day: An Oral History of Dublin's Bygone Days by Kevin Corrigan Kearns


For over fifty years, Kevin C. Kearns trekked the streets of Dublin recording the city's vanishing oral history. Armed only with a Sony tape recorder, the ordinary people he encountered shared private stories of hardship, joy, sorrow, suffering, survival and triumph.

'In Our Day' is the culmination of a life's work - a treasure trove bursting with whispers from the past and a poignant portrait of a forgotten Dublin.

He is the author of Dublin Voices: An Oral Folk History, Stoneybatter: Dublin’s Inner Urban Village, Ireland’s Arctic Siege: The Big Freeze of 1947 and The Bombing of Dublin’s North Strand: The Untold Story.
