'The "Church of Ireland Gazette"'s perspective on life in 1950s Ireland'

Press/Media: Expert Comment

Description

Life in the Ireland of the 1950s was characterised by poor economic performance, high emigration, political instability and social conservatism, and in the north there was a sense calm before the political storm that would emerge in the latter half of the 1960s. All of these developments are chronicled and analysed from the perspective of the Church of Ireland in the pages of its weekly Gazette.
