My Wife is Married to a Feckin’ Eejit - The hilarious debut from one of Ireland’s funniest comedians!

This October, Gill Books will publish the hilarious debut from Irish comedian Bernard O’Shea.


Relationships aren’t easy, something Bernard knows all too well. Especially when your wife – after nearly twelve years of fights and flights, holiday disasters and tantrums – has nicknamed you ‘The Feckin’ Eejit’. If you thought your marriage was hard, wait until you see theirs!


When Bernard asked his wife Lorna to tell him the top three most-stupid things he’d ever done, she listed off twenty! From the time Bernard walked into a glass door on their first holiday together, to the ‘The Great Dishwasher Row of 2009’; his various attempts at weight loss; the trials of grocery shopping with children; leaving his Christmas shopping until the last minute; a disastrous caravan holiday in rural Ireland; dyeing all their clothes shades of green, and his hopeless attempts at DIY!

For Bernard, life is a lazy adventure. For his wife Lorna, it’s more of an endurance race – juggling three young children and Bernard’s ‘eejitry’. It’s not always easy! My Wife is Married to a Feckin’ Eejit is the laugh-out -loud account of the trials and tribulations of family life, made all the harder when you’re married to a Feckin’ Eejit!


My Wife is Married to a Feckin’ Eejit will be published on Friday, 11 October, priced at €16.99. Available to pre-order now from or
