Radio Ireland

Overview


After the passing of his father, Brendan decides to leave North America behind and begin a new life as a rock radio host in his family's ancestral home of Dublin. But when Brendan arrives he discovers that Rory, his co-host and lifelong friend, is missing. In a moment of inspiration, Brendan invents an unexpected co-host who takes Dublin by storm and invites him to confront his past. What results is an emotionally charged and heartfelt tale that combines laugh-out-loud stories with bittersweet episodes and an ending you won't soon forget.

Description


If the word “Ireland” in the title of this book grabbed

your attention and you picked it up hoping to find the

divine wit and brilliant handling of the written word

synonymous with the likes of James Joyce and Brendan

Behan, you will not !nd that here, regardless of the fact that

“I am a drinker with writing problems” – thank you

for that bit of beauty, Mr. Behan.


If you are hoping to find that hilarious Irish sense of

humor so many have come to appreciate the world over, may I

recommend you put this book back and pick up a copy of

“The Mammy” by Brendan O’Carroll. You’ll thank me for

that read.


Now that being said, the following pages contain a work

of fiction that is unfortunately far from being fiction. Of

course, the names have been changed to protect the identity

of the innocent, the guilty, and mainly the name of the individual

who shit himself on the plane.


May I suggest you pour yourself a drink? That part of the

book does hold true to the Irish stereotype. A whiskey would

be preferred but a beer or wine should suffice nicely. Those

of you who frequent live music venues would have no doubt

encountered a band boasting “the more you drink the better

we sound.” The same would hold true for you, the reader,

while taking in the coming chapters. There is nothing quite

like a cocktail or two to bring out the natural ambiance of

laughs, tears, and the general manner of storytelling.


Now that you have a drink in your hand and are prepared

to dive into this little piece of writing of mine, I would like to

propose a toast. “To those whose sense of humor made us not

only laugh, but provided definition to our wonderful life,

before passing on far too soon.” Slainte!

Enjoy,

Kevin
