A Fish Supper and a Chippie Smile - Hilda Kemp

A Song for Bridget

The unforgetable true story behind the Sunday Times bestselling memoir ‘Finding Tipperary Mary’.

A brutal and touching account of the life of Bridget Tipperary Mary Larkin.

She faced poverty, bereavement, cruelty and abandonment many times over, yet never lost the heart to pursue true love.

Returning to rural Ireland in 1938 as a young girl full of hope and expectation, a series of tragic events eventually brought Bridget to Manchester and Birmingham, where she faced a desperate daily struggle to survive.

Bridget’s haunting story, told for her by her daughter, is a perfect example of both the fragility and resilience of the human spirit.
