Ireland in the 1960s and 1970s is the setting for Rebel Green which is the book I’m working on. I went to Ireland as a 6 year old child with my English parents and siblings, and stayed for almost 20 years. We lived through the years of the Troubles but were never directly affected by them. As teenagers, we did drink in a pub frequented by members of the Provos but the landlord used to advise us if any of them arrived so we could leave discretely.
The book will examine how being moved to a new country can affect a whole family. Small incidents can colour a childhood and create false perceptions leading to tragedy. I hope you will enjoy these photos of that time. Do you have any similar experiences to share? You can do this on my Author page at https://www.facebook.com/PJSkinnerAuthor/ or send me an email.
