Review

'[Bryan Gallagher] has a way with words. He can tell you a tale ! in a way which resonates so strongly and convincingly that you know you are getting something from the heart ! This is an utterly charming and beautiful book; each short tale is carefully crafted and rich in language and imagery ! I cannot recommend this collection highly enough.' Ulster Tatler 'Bryan Gallagher's reminiscences of the Ireland of his youth transport you to a world of boyhood pranks, playground politics and the confusion of growing up in a land that is every bit as magical and captivating as the stories he has to tell ! Gallagher's writing will touch the hearts of those who long for the innocence of childhood and the simplicity of the past ! this remarkable memoir vividly recreates life in rural Ireland in the 1940s and '50s.' The Western Mail Series '! a heart-warming memoir !' The Insight 'A remarkable snapshot of country life in Forties and Fifties Ireland that evokes many of the universal themes of childhood.' Sunday Express 'Gallagher writes beautifully in his memoir ... with obvious affection but without undue sentimentality ... Bryan Gallagher is still a master -- a master of the short story, and this is a gem of a book' Irish Voice 'Bryan Gallagher's memories of the Ireland of his youth, first heard on Radio Four's Home Truths, transport you to a world of boyhood pranks, playground politics and teh confusion of growing up in a magical land that is every bit as magical and captivating as the stories he tells.'

Format: Paperback
In this book Bryan Gallagher reminisces about his life growing up near the shores of Lough Erne in Fermanagh. Every chapter is quite short and contains a different story. It's a beautiful book and very easy to read. The innocence of the country people living in the 40s and 50s is told and shows how witty they were even when they were trying to be serious. I highly recommend this book. Anyone who enjoys this will also enjoy Frank Delaneys' 'Ireland' book.

Format: Hardcover
Bryan Gallagher, an occasional contributor to the late John Peel's "Home Truths", on Radio 4, reminisces about growing up in rural County Fermanagh in the forties. A time of poverty, deprivation, ignorance and yet love, joy, humour and music. This was a sparse yet close-knit community, where schoolchildren more often than not went to school barefoot, where there was no radio, TV, phone, electricity. Cars were a rarity. One is struck by how recent it was and how much life has changed - but we've also lost something. You don't have to be Irish or old or to live in the country, to appreciate this - these short stories would appeal to anyone.

Bryan Gallagher has brought together what amounts to a local history and beautiful storytelling. The stories have a timelessness and depth that fit every community. This isn't just about Ireland wherever you live you will connect with this gem.

I had read this book in paperback, but the audio version is just absolutely fabulous..... read by my old School Principal, the author himself it transports you right back almost live to his boyhood to the event of the day or night, when many of his stories happened amid the townlands and villages of lovely Fermanagh...... an account of his life growing up, his family, community, and the Starlight Showband made up of many short stories about events, some utterly hilarious while others more reminiscent and sad. As he reads the books aloud you realise he's not actually just reading from print, but fondly taking a trip back in time.

To mirror the above quote, this is an 'utterly charming and beautiful book,' I too, cannot recommend Bryan Gallagher's collection highly enough.
