In The Ould Ago has won the Judges Special Award in the International Rubery Book Awards “An astonishingly detailed study of old Irish folklore, clearly a labour of love that must have taken many years to complete. It is a beautifully presented coffee-table book with an array of fascinating details and meticulous, hand-drawn illustrations. It is a unique look at the history of everyday rural life, a world that needs to be captured before it vanishes completely from our memories”. In The Ould Ago gets an Honorable Mention in the History section of the San Francisco Book Festivals Awards.

Article in about Johnny

Johnny tells the stor of the Big Farmer and the Wee Farmer

- It's a beautiful work and full of amazing references that bring back memories from childhood visiting my relations in Irvinestown, Lisnaskea and Enniskillen. My only regret is that my mother was not alive to see it as she would have had loads of tales to tell, no doubt, as she turned the pages. It's a gift I will treasure and I will undoubtedly go on line and buy a few more for the extended family as gifts. Paul Brady

- I am honoured to have received such a wonderful record of life as it once was, much of it in my own living memory. I have only dipped into it and I
look forward to spending more time in it over the coming weeks. This is a very special publication. It is wonderful that your Dad's is receiving such richly deserved recognition. It gives such a unique and priceless view of a world that has disappeared in our lifetime...contains valuable information that will be essential for what may lie ahead.....
Sincerely Yours....Christy Moore
