Brendan Ashore: The Adventures of an Irish Lad Seeking his Fortunes in Liverpool in the Early 1960s


0.00 · 0 ratings · Published: Aug 31st, 2017 {{ book.ratingTitle }}
Brendan Harris spent his childhood in semi-rural Ireland in the 1940s and went on to join the Merchant Navy—a career cut short by a horrific road accident. Now, at the age of twenty-three, he—as the saying went at the time—‘takes the boat’ leaving Ireland to make his fortune in Liverpool.

In this, the third book of the ‘An Irish Lad’ series, we follow Brendan as he takes up lodgings with a lonely landlady in Bootle, gets a temporary job as store man in a department store in the city, goes to football matches and dancing, meets girls and visits the now famous Cavern Club. With a surprising turn of events, Brendan starts a new career and a new life.

Written in David’s relaxed, humorous style, Brendan Ashore offers an insight into life in the 1960s in the north of England—as seen through the eyes of ‘An Irish Lad’.
