Former county councillor, Sinead Guckian's beautiful paintings also feature as well and it is very much a family affair as also included is a story on her mother, Colleen's triple book production during the lockdown.
You can also read an article on the place of embroidered silk postcards in the Great War (World War I) and some photos of how intricately they were hand embroidered by the local women of France and Belgium for the soldiers to send to their families back home.
