Images of Rosslare captures the personality behind one of Ireland's most colourful harbour villages. Rosslare Harbour is perhaps Ireland's most important Ferry Port, with regular passages to Fishguard, Roscoff, Pembroke and Le Harve. Along with being a nationally essential fishing port, the harbour is home to the famous Rosslare Lifeboat Crew, responsible for saving so many lives.
Rosslare native, Leo Coy has illustrated, with this collection of images, the development of the village over the last century. Images of Rosslare maps how this village community grew around the commercial expansion of Rosslare Harbour. From what began as an area without a school or even a shop, has emerged a lively community, which Leo Coy has lovingly unveiled in this book. Images of Rosslare gives the reader an insight into the lives of the people who grew up in the village; we see the schools they attended and the festivals they held which helped establish the community as the harbour established itself as an international port.
