I was very grateful to be sent a copy of my great grandmother’s book, Tears of Laughter. Esther Morris (née Cristol) was born in Cork and published three short plays. I mentioned this fact at the launch of the Representations of Jews in Irish Literature exhibition in Waterford to Barry Montgomery, one of the lead researchers. Lo and behold, he managed to find a copy of the book and sent it to me. Here are a few screenshots of the book, which I will treasure.
