Only 1 left in stock
Galway is one of the most important and interesting cities. It has always been a place of contrasts, of light and shade, with both sombre and vital aspects, where class antagonisms have endured alongside a strong sense of loyalty to the city.
Drawing form a range of sources, such as local newspapers, police reports, official statistics and the impressions of visitors, this book explores urban life during a difficult period in the history from below in which the attitudes and experiences of working people and of the marginalized poor are always kept in the foreground.
