We are delighted to invite you to the launch of Ronan Casey’s Medium Sized Town, Fairly Big Story on November 20th in The Greville Arms Hotel, Pearse Street, Mullingar, Co. Westmeath. The book will be launched by Hector Ó hEochagáin. All welcome!
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Medium-Sized Town, Fairly Big Story is a window on the real soul of Ireland, a snapshot of the way we were, the way we are and, hopefully, the way we’ll always be.
For anyone with a sense of humour and a taste for the absurd, here are the best of the unique, hilarious stories from towns and villages the length and breadth of the country that made the headlines in the local newspapers … and nowhere else. With stories about the dogs in Mountmellick being forced to wear nappies, the Kerry boat-builder who travelled 23 minutes back in time, the pub thieves who escaped through Limerick prison, the Corkman whose most treasured possession is his bucket from the Pope’s 1979 visit, and many, many more, Medium-Sized Town, Fairly Big Story showcases the best of Ireland’s distinctive humour, personality and wit.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Currently a fixture on TV3’s ‘Ireland AM’ show, Ronan Casey brings the most ludicrous stories from Ireland’s local newspapers to air every Friday morning.

A widely experienced broadcaster and journalist, he has written for many national newspapers and has spent over a decade on the frontlines with some of Ireland’s best-known local newspapers. He is the author of the critically acclaimed, bestselling biography of the late Joe Dolan for Penguin in 2008. He lives in Mullingar where his wife and two children have evicted him to the garage to indulge his newspaper habit.
