With evocative descriptions and detailed drawings of once-familiar objects, 'Irish Country Life' recalls an old Ireland that has almost gone: the smell of baking bread wafting from the pot oven on an open fire; a cast-iron kettle humming away quietly; the landscape dotted with stone walls and wayside stiles; sowing, harvesting, winnowing and threshing all having their own seasons. Olive Sharkey is from the Irish midlands, near the site of the thatched farmhouse in County Westmeath that she recalls in this book.
