‘We asked listeners to be honest, creative, funny, engaging and evocative in their writing … to try to make us laugh, cry and think. We never imagined we would get the quantity and quality of entries that we did for A Page from My Life.’ – Ray D’Arcy
In the midst of the Covid crisis, the Ray D’Arcy Show invited RTE Radio 1 listeners to send in ‘A Page from My Life’: 500 words on a memorable event, or a story simply worth sharing.
The response was overwhelming. Ray and his team were inundated with over 2,500 entries, from authors of all ages and all walks of life. And what those entries created was an extraordinary picture of Irish life in microcosm.
Funny and heart-breaking, poignant and surprising, they told a series of unforgettable stories … moments that changed everything, and where life itself seemed to hang in the balance. Quiet reflections on the meaning of love and loss.
