Susan Doyle’s Scrapbooks

Susan Doyle from Mt Merrion, Blackrock, Co Dublin, grew up in the 60s.

“On rainy days mother would give us old cards to cut up and use in scrapbooks.”

And what a discovery! As well as saving cards, and notes, Susan also documented the USA’s Apollo 11 mission to the moon in 1969. Newspaper clippings from the Irish Press feature mission pilots Buzz Aldrin, Michael Collins, and mission commander Neil Armstrong. More information to follow….
