Vintage Nell Summary


Vintage Nell: The McCafferty Reader by Nell McCafferty

Nell McCafferty saw and lived it all. When the North started marching in the sixties and bombs erupted in the seventies, and whenever Irishwomen were in court - from the civil rights marches and Bloody Sunday to one young girl's case against the State to win herself the right to an abortion, and all the victories of Irishwomen in the climate of another Ireland - she was there. Nell McCafferty writes about what she saw in her own way, as no one else ever could, or would. The force of her everpartial, passionately partisan, pen has won her a place as Ireland's leading woman journalist of the past half-century. Taken from sources ranging from her famous "Eyes of the Law" series in the Irish Times, to the Irish Press, "In Dublin", "Hot Press", "Kerry's Eye" and "Magill", Nell harvests the strange fruits of Irish cultural life from the sixties to the twenty-first century. Here are her classic accounts of the Pope's Visit in 1979, the death of Ann Lovett in 1984 and the Kerry Babies a year later; from the serious - Armagh Women, Peace People at War, Chernobyl - to the humorous and satiric - Silent Night, Why We Don't Need Men, Winnie Mandela - Vintage Nell combines the best work of this prodigiously talented writer.
