ME AND MINE tells the story of an Irish immigrant family who left rural Ireland in the 1950s to find work and a better way of life in England. From aunts who claimed their current hair shade as genetic and ferried leather suitcases dripping with blood from the Irish boat train because English meat was 'dirt' to one who mashed all of her only son's food until he was eleven in case he choked, and relatives being considered monied because of owning a post office account and a caravan! Battling poverty, death, illness and everday life this is a story of survival, triumph and laughter in the face of adversity from a truly colourful cast of characters told with wit and warmth.
