Charlie Connelly is a great communicator and a very amusing writer who is easy to read. I love all his books and this was no exception.

A truly entertaining read, very informative and well written. I would recommend this book to anyone within interest in Ireland.

Firstly, I certainly wasn't aware that Barack Obama has ever claimed "Irish Roots" ??????? I fail to see how he could, exactly........

To this book, then. I have read the vast majority of Charlie's books ( and have e-mailed him on various topics, a number of times, disappointingly never even getting an acknowledgement, maybe "fame" does this to hitherto "ordinary" people ?) and have enjoyed them all, in the main, although personally he will never "top" "Attention All Shipping", certainly not with this offering which has, as referred to elsewhere, a lot of long passages of seriousness. This was starting to creep in in "And did those....." and i wonder if Charlie is almost starting to believe in himself as a "serious" writer ?

This has moments of hilarity, and one can't fail to feel Charlie's warmth ( even if it doesn't extend to acknowledging e-mails ever - I can't believe Charlie is SO busy...... ) but it also feels a little "no mans land" and possibly the creative juices are starting to dry up ?

Now that would be a real pity
