Venue: The Chapel, An Diseart
Have you ever thought, looking at an item for sale on a classified ad, ‘I wonder what the story is behind this item for sale?
Brian O’Connell, RTÉ journalist, did wonder. For Brian, the classified ads can open a door into the lives of ordinary people with extraordinary stories. From wedding dresses ‘never worn’ to pet monkeys for sale, the ads are a treasure trove of stories, of human experience, of loss and love.
Brian will share some of these fascinating human stories and show how the ads are a doorway into both and past and contemporary Irish life..
