Join us for the launch of The Lost Boys of Galway by Pearl O’Kennedy on Friday December 2nd from 7pm.
This book beautifully captures Galway native Pearl O’Kennedy’s 15 years with the Galway Diocesan Youth Services, running and setting up No. 4 and Cyrene House in the 1980s and 90s. It features the stories of many of the homeless boys Pearl worked with over the years – stories that will have you laughing and crying in equal measure, stories that constitute an important piece of Galway’s social history and offer lessons for us today.
Pearl’s sketches and paintings accompany the stories throughout. This is Pearl’s second book after I Remember, I Remember: Galway Stories and Sketches (2012).
