"Favourite Poems We Learned at School" and its companion volumes "More Favourite Poems We Learned at School" and "Favourite Poems We Learned at School as Gaeilge" have become enduring bestsellers in Ireland. The illustrated edition takes forty of the most popular poems from the three volumes and juxtaposes them with classic photographs of children, schoolrooms and teachers of times past - some humorous, some quirky, some poignant. The photographs are drawn from sources such as the great collections of Lawrence, Poole and Father Browne, the archives of the Ulster Folk and Transport Museum and from the portfolios of individual photographers, some famous, many anonymous. The anthology contains such gems as "The Village Blacksmith", "Daffodils", "Sea Fever" and "All Things Bright and Beautiful", which readers will remember with affection from their own schooldays. It is truly a collection to treasure.
