Comment: Aged book. PLEASE READ BEFORE PURCHASE. Please note this book is over 20 years old. It will therefore have tanned pages, age spots and plenty of shelfwear. However for its age it is still very useable, and a great read.

"Today, West Cork is a glamorous destination, a haven for upmarket tourists, but in the 1950s it was the arse end of the back of beyond - and that may be talking it up". Pete McCarthy was born in Warrington to an Irish mother and an English father and spent happy summer holidays in Cork. Years later, reflecting on the many places he has visited as a travel broadcaster, Pete admits that he feels more at home in Ireland than anywhere.To find out whether this is due to rose-coloured spectacles or to a deeper tie with the country of his ancestors, Pete sets off on a trip around Ireland and discovers that it has changed in surprising ways. Firstly obeying the rule "never pass a pub with your name on it", he encounters McCarthy's bars up and down the land, and meets English hippies, German musicians, married priests and many others. A funny, affectionate look at one of the most popular countries in the world.

 Wonderfully funny

Just an addition to previous review. The reason Pete no longer writes is he sadly died in 2004. I was lucky enough to see him live on a theatre tour. Brilliant. Both his books are highly recommended and you really will laugh out loud.

This is one of the most hilarious books I have read about Ireland. Having been to Cork for my 40th birthday I could truely relate to the place and the people. You won't be sorry you bought it. Just a shame he's not done more!!!
Fabulous- laugh out loud humour!!!
