'We Knew Matt Talbot' is the story of the life of Matt Talbot (1856 - 1925) through the eyes of people who knew him.
Matt Talbot, the saintly Dublin working-man, who died in 1925, is a vague and shadowy figure for most of us. But the men and women who lived and worked and prayed beside him in the Dublin of those days remember him as a striking and lovable personality.
