More About the Author

Barry French. Born in March 1971 in Watford, where he lived until the ripe of age of 28. He got a job in the City of London as a recruitment consultant, so moved out to deepest Essex as it was easier to commute. It was in Essex he became a DJ in the local pub and developed a love of the countryside.

Barry moved to Hampton Hill, in the London Borough of Richmond in May 2011 to be with his partner, the very tolerant Samantha.

The authors passions are travel, classical music and Watford Football Club. He also enjoys cycling and walking and recently enjoys unwinding watching and photographing the many deer in Bushy Park.

His humour is not to everybody's taste. He seems to think of it as 'intelligent humour', although in reality will crack up laughing at good old-fashioned knob gag.

3.0 out of 5 stars I had hoped it would be better 23 Sep 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I had high hopes when I started this book.. I was a little disapointed.. There was so much promise but it fell flat. I had hoped the dog would have had more prominant part in the tale, instead it seemd to lack depth and concentrated mainly on drinking. ok I know its Ireland but surely theres something else to do ??

2.0 out of 5 stars Not for this traveller! 16 Feb 2014

I could not be bothered to finish this book. I found it confusing: Not only did the journey seem to jump between two journeys, but the author seem to find himself more interesting than Ireland, while I bought the book because I love Ireland ... The book might be good (whow! Now I'll never know!), but in my case it was a clash of interests.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK if you have nothing better to read. 17 Nov 2013

I guess this might have been Barry's first venture as an author its not exactly slick or informative nor particularly amusing. A visit to the bog is an apt title and its where he should have left it!
