Paddy Boy - Growing Up Irish in a Newfoundland Outport Patrick O'Flaherty

ISBN 978-1-897426-67-8

Price: CDN$17.95

Book Description
Paddy Boy is Patrick O’Flaherty’s lively memoir of childhood in a small secluded Newfoundland fishing community, covering the years 1939-54. This time period is a bridge between the old separate country of Newfoundland with its curious links to England, Ireland, and Scotland, and its new status, after 1947, as a province of Canada. That change affected the outport of O’ Flaherty’s childhood in a number of ways, and that is part of the story. He reimagines just what that lost pre-confederation world was like, how children figured in it, how his family and other families functioned and what part religion played.

These are the raw, honest experiences of a boy growing up in Northern Bay, Newfoundland, and the story of a family living in one small Quasi-Irish community in a remote location
