“The wounds of the long winter will take many years to heal….Ireland must begin to remember”[Chambers, 2021:320]
Thank you to @newschambers for writing this very important book.
Thank you for including my mother’s story in it. #AStateOfEmergency
MarianKeyes has written a sequel to RachelsHoliday
Ireland people, #AStateOfEmergency by @newschambers is COMPELLING reading. Lays bare the political jostling and power grabs that shaped our national Covid experience. (He interviewed ALL the main players...) Fully respectful of our national loss, it's an unputdownable read
I genuinely think one of the saddest things I've ever read is the chapter on nursing homes in #AStateofEmergency by Richard Chambers. Very respectful and human but a hard read particularly as everything is ongoing. Otherwise a brilliant read so far!
