OFFICIAL BOOK LAUNCH – NI War Memorial museum

There was nowhere more fitting to launch a book about a Belfast family in the war years than this fantastic museum. The story of the city through those momentous times was all around us – the blitz, the role of women, the arrival of the Americans and above all the courage and tenacity of the people of Northern Ireland. The Golden Sisters and, of course, Martha would have found it both familiar and exciting and I’m sure they would have been happy to join Noreen (Sheila’s daughter) when she took to the stage to sing some songs of the period ‘Don’t Sit Under the Apple Tree’ and ‘Sentimental Journey’. Many thanks to the museum and Blackstaff Press for a wonderful evening.
