You'll Ruin your Dinner: Sweet Memories from Irish childhood

Damian Corless
Authors:
Damian Corless

Whether your taste was for fiddlestix or Flavour Ravers, Trigger bars or Two and Twos, Marathons or macaroons, Peggy's Legs or Push Pops, Liquorice Allsorts or Little Devils, You'll Ruin Your Dinner has something for you.From the heyday of Cleeve's toffee to the birth of the Tayto Cheese & Onion crisp, it transports us back to the days when sweet shop windows across the country boasted tempting confectionery displays, when summer was heralded with a visit from the ice-cream cart, and when Grafton Street was the sweet shop capital of Ireland.And then there was the golden age of Irish-made sweets, when the entire nation downed tools to listen to Fry-Cadbury's soap The Kennedys of Castleross and Gay Byrne cut his teeth on The Urney Programme.The next three decades brought enduring favourites along with fleeting fads, but the craving for a sugar-rush remained steadfast for generations of Irish kids to come. These mouth-watering memories are captured here across the decades in an assortment that will keep you dipping back in for more - and it won't ruin your dinner.

Joyce, June and Paula Kavanagh were three sisters born to a family of ten in Ballyfermot, Dublin in the 1960s. Their father abused all three of them in the family home throughout their childhood.In 1989, the sisters made the brave decision to bring charges against their father and, in 1990, the state took a successful case against him. He was convicted and imprisoned.Click, Click is the story of their abuse; the exposure of a man prolific in his paedophilia; and an Irish childhood lost in a dysfunctional, abusive and torturous environment.Importantly, however, it is also the story of three women's healing; their coming to terms with their abuse, and their forgiveness of themselves and others.The Kavanagh sisters have refused to allow their abuse to define them. With fierce humour, insight and honesty, they now share their story and show that with love and determination, you can indeed conquer all.

The Book of Poor Ould Fellas

Declan Lynch, Arthur Mathews
Authors:
Declan Lynch, Arthur Mathews

The Poor Ould Fella is perhaps the most loved and definitely the most endangered species in Ireland. The Celtic Tiger has, alas, passed him by. As modern life continues to intrude on his traditional ways, he has little choice but to retreat to the safety of the pub or the comfort of his own fireside. Yet even in these familiar places of consolation, the 21st century threatens his peace of mind. How the Poor Ould Fella despises such modern concoctions as alcohol-free Guinness, the smoking ban and reality television. In The Book of Poor Ould Fellas, for the first time, this dying way of life is dissected by the witty pen of one of Ireland's favourite writers, Declan Lynch, accompanied by the darkly humorous illustrations of Father Ted and I Keano creator Arthur Mathews. Many topics of significance to the POF come under inspection, such as The Internet, The Carvery Lunch, Telly Bingo, The Dog Called Mick, the New Mass, Mobile Phones and Hovels that are now Worth a Million. Here we discover the Ladies they Like (Sophia Loren, Grace Kelly and Maureen O'Hara), Ladies They Don't Like (Sinead O'Connor); Their ideal TV Schedule (Johnny McEvoy In Concert, Colombo, Lots of Horse Racing) and Their Nightmare TV schedule (Anna Nolan, Celebrity Chefs, Trinny and Susannah); A Typical Day in the Life; Great POFs in History; and Prominent POFs today. The Book of Poor Ould Fellas is guaranteed to be one of the funniest books of the year.

Accidental Pilgrim

David Moore
Authors:
David Moore

After one Silicon Valley project meeting too many, David Moore returned to Dublin with too much money to get a real job, and no idea what to do next.The Accidental Pilgrim follows the recovering dotcommer as he rides two thousand miles across Europe in pursuit of himself and the Celtic saint Columbanus - the Roy Keane of the early medieval Church. A bad-ass early Irish saint who wouldn't stand for such ephemeral notions as identity crises, if anyone could sort the craic-loving but well-mannered young man, Columbanus would.On the way to the saint's final resting place in Northern Italy, there are bee-stings in Malin Head, melting roads along the Loire, and instant celebrity in eastern France.A freewheeling traveller's tale with a dash of medieval history thrown in, The Accidental Pilgrim presents an unlikely double-act and a rewarding journey.
