Memories of the PastMembers of the Irish Seniors' Social Group have written their first-ever publication, "Memories of the Past" - a touching collection of stories and recipes. The book is an exciting collection of stories that trace the sadness of leaving Ireland and the memories of a way of life which has changed dramatically since members emigrated from Ireland more than half a century ago. Other contributions trace the development of Irish culture in the Ottawa area and the strong links with Irish heritage that have survived time and memory.
