Review

'Classic Ronnie Drew ... no nonsense recollections and clear-eyed humour' RTAe Guide 'A unique insight into this most Dublin of men' Evening Herald 'To his children I can say, you've done the Old Man proud with this one' Irish Mail on Sunday

Product Description

The late great Dubliner, Ronnie Drew, was six months into writing his biography when he was diagnosed with cancer. He had produced warm, witty and insightful material that made it clear that he was a wonderful writer as well as a great singer and storyteller. With the encouragement of his wife Deirdre and his family, he continued to think about the book and conducted a number of interviews to keep things ticking over until he was well enough to resume work on it. But sadly, much as he wanted to, Ronnie did not get to finish his story.


However, with the whole-hearted co-operation of his daughter and son, Cliodhna and Phelim, it has been possible to put together Ronnie's work on his memoir along with his other writings, interviews with Cliodhna and Phelim, a wealth of photographs and other material from the family archive, and contributions from close friends, to create a book that is a wonderful portrait of, and a fitting and loving tribute to, the man Bono called 'the king of Ireland'.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ronnie - In His Own Words 1 Dec 2009
Format:Paperback
This is an enjoyable read, especially for those of us old enough to remember the original Dubliners. Mostly written by Ronnie Drew himself, the bits written by his daughter Cliodhna and son Phelim are an added bonus. All in all a good biography. Like the man himself, honest and upfront.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good read about a great guy. 18 Oct 2010
Format:Kindle Edition
A good book about Ronnie Drew's life and times, a very honest read, At times it can be a bit slow but it's got a good mix of Humour and sadness etc. However there are alot of spelling mistakes and words without spaces, Which is a real letdown.
