The People and the Journey, through the passage of time...... The book is another 'labour of love' but with a darker edge than before. With over 300 pages and 250 pictures/images/drawings that are produced to a high standard, it takes the reader on an 'epic' journey across two continents, and connects major historical events with people from both the city and county and yet never straying too far from the banks of the majestic Shannon.
It also explores the various influences of people from home and abroad and how they have helped shape a vibrant city. It looks back with fondness on the various industries, lifestyles, cultures and traditions but mostly the people from another era. It looks at how aviation helped to shape the region going right back to the early days of the Flying Boats at the port of Foynes and the development of Rineanna (now Shannon) as one of the country's major airports, while also bringing the story forward through occasional turbulent times.
