Wacky Eire

Geraldine Comiskey

With features on Cavan's famous drinking bull; Luke ‘Ming' Flanagan breaking the law with the author to cut turf on a protected bog; Wexford's GAA porn-starring player; and going man-hunting with Sinead O'Connor at Lisdoonvarna, Wacky Eire is an hilarious look into modern Irish life.

Imagine BBC's Country File crossed with the cult series Eurotrash, or Father Ted… Now imagine it as a book of true stories, written by an insider who has traveled the length and breadth of Ireland seeking out the weird, the wacky, the raunchy and the downright shocking… this is Wacky Eire.


An outrageous romp through the real Ireland - where ancient traditions and modern obsessions make lively bedfellows and where people constantly surprise you: naughty farmers, dodgy faith-healers, secret swingers, strippers, animal antics - they're all here in words and pictures. Ranging from scandalous exposes to charming vignettes of rural life, this is the brazen face - and other bodily parts - of modern Ireland. Welcome to Wacky Eire - it's stranger than fiction.
