A Lifetime Long Ago: Book Launch by Mary Hughes
The story of two women from different worlds, each on a journey beyond their comfort zone, this is A Lifetime Long Ago, the first book by Clifden native Mary Hughes. Mary grew up in the town in the 1970s and 1980s, the eldest of four children. After finishing Clifden Community School in June of 1989, she moved to the UK, where she met her husband. In 2001, Mary, Paul and three-year-old Amy moved back to Ireland, settling in Newbridge in Co. Kildare. In 2002, Owen came into the world and made the family complete.
Although Mary says she is ‘no storyteller’, but an ‘accidental author,’ when the idea came to her to write this book around Christmas of 2016, the words flew onto the pages and the main text was on paper within a few days. Back in her hometown, she will launch the book she once could not imagine ever completing!
