Maidir leis an leabhar:

Cur síosThe name of the book suggests a link between a ‘sainted’ residential area off the Falls Rd Belfast with the marshes and meadows of the Blackstaff flood plain. The proximity to each other ensured that the residents of the St James’s district took advantage of the Wildlife refuge of the Bog Meadows and ensured that it became a Nature reserve when it came under threat from developers. The book describes the social history of the St James’s district, the standards of living and the problems faced by the changing economic conditions of the time. In addition, the challenge of wartime years is outlined and the response of the people to the risks posed to their survival.
