Format: Paperback
"Tipperary" is the entrancing tale of Charles O'Brien, the son of an Anglo-Irish family who devotes his adult life to the healing of the sick, the restoration and preservation of Tipperary Castle and the romantic pursuit of its possible owner, April Burke. Set early in the 20th Century, Charles meets with a collection of figures of Irish history including Oscar Wilde, William Butler Yeats and Michael Colllins. Although Charles' series of encounters seems to be incredible, it is entertaining. In the course of his exploits, Charles becomes involved in the Irish War of Independence and the following Civil War.

This book is an absolute delight. The dialogue reflects what one would expect to hear in Ireland, at least it reminded me of my cousins from there. Charles' experiences teach the reader much about Irish history. We are introduced to key personalities, the relationship between the Anglo-Irish and the Irish, the importance of Irish Manor Houses in the story of Ireland and a taste of the life lived by the revolutionaries. I found nothing offensive in this book. I enjoyed this book from start to finish and trust that anyone who loves things Irish will as well.

Frank Delaney rises to the occasion again in this account of the lives of a Tipperary family set amid the turbulent times of the Easter Rising and its aftermath, the Truce and subsequent Civil War. It's a jolly good read and keeps the reader interested from beginning to the end of the story.
