TCD of the sixties was an unusual, even unique institution, where a motley collection of students from England, Ireland and many other parts of the world came together at a fascinating time in the post-war period. TCD then was a remarkably small, mainly Protestant university, curiously cut off from, but also part of an old Catholic city. It was an eccentric little world. "Trinity Tales" explores this sixties milieu through thirty-six different autobiographical lenses, including works by Derek Mahon, Brendan Kennelly, Edna and Michael Longley, Roy Foster, Jeremy Lewis, Ray Lynott, Rock Brynner and Donnell Deeny: alumni who overlapped, played their part, and in turn involved later alumni. This book is an invaluable record of a culture in transition, handsomely illustrated with photographs.
