Remember Ireland at Christmas? Not like this you don't
The Remembering Ireland satirical archive - perhaps the grumpiest in the land - digs out a few of its favourite seasonal gems from times past
As the country’s premier library of artefacts from our nation’s past, we here at Remembering Ireland HQ know fine well what place Christmas holds in the Irish imagination. When people arrive at our humble archive, a common refrain at this time of year is “have you anything Christmassy?”. We are not open to the public, so such questions are met with withering scorn and – more than likely – the threat of physical violence.
We have, however, often thought about what it would be like if we were we to entertain such inquiries from such unwelcome thickos. In this vein, and perhaps to deter people from coming here only to be forcibly removed, we thought we’d offer a little glimpse at our most treasured Yuletide objects, a glance at dear old Ireland from those grand, forgotten days of Christmas past.
