Rick? Ricky me foot!
on 15 June 2004
Whilst walking around Dublin during the Christmas I spotted this book. Although I've seen Ricky on television, I really knew nothing about him but this book made me laugh and cry. He comes across as honest and a down to earth soul, mixing it with the grass roots and with the upper crusts of society. But at the end of the day he's just plain "Ricky". When I started reading this book I found I couldn't leave it down, I just wanted to know what was going to happen next. Some of the stories are priceless and it is amazing to think what sort of life is behind the public face. I found it touching at times and, for me, it is that little bit of magic which makes it a "must have" book.
