The book has an extensive section on The Cranberries. There are articles and photographs on Classical and Opera from the 1800’s.
There is a generous amount of coverage from the era of the Showbands, and ceili bands that performed in dance halls all over County Limerick.
Expect to read about the recording studios, the venues and the era when pirate radio stations ruled the airwaves in Limerick in the 1980’s.
