Older Than Ireland

A unique and priceless book everyone should read, Charlie Byrne’s now has copies of Older Than Ireland available in store.

Expanding on the award-winning documentary of the same name, Older Than Ireland explores the lives of thirty Irish centenarians including Ireland’s oldest citizen on record, Kathleen Snavely (113) and Ireland’s oldest ever man, Luke Dolan (108). Each born before the 1916 Rising and the origion of the Irish state.

This book reflects on the key events in their lives. The day they got their first pair of shoes, the thrill of their first kiss, the magic of their wedding day and the tragic loss of their loved ones.

They are our living history and these are their extraordinary stories.
