Age and Opportunity published ‘Life is for Living’ to celebrate 25 years promoting positive attitudes towards ageing and older people in Ireland. Each story in the book – featuring hand rendered typography illustrated by Kathi Burke, combined with water colour patterns in a spectrum of colours – encourages the reader to shape their life at every age and to continue to challenge themselves.

With contributions from well-known public figures such as writer Edna O’Brien, Tony Ward, Olivia O’Leary, Christy Moore and Pauline Bewick, the book tells us about the events that have shaped their lives – as well as their hopes for the future.
