About this Book

I was born in Leitrim. A very rural and sheltered part of Ireland. This book is about growing up there. To be honest – I’m trying to steal back time.

We hadn’t a clue till we got the telly and then we wanted to be like ‘Dallas’. It’s not an angry book. There’s no slander or shame – just a bunch of mad
country people trying to make all their ends meet. We were never happy, that we knew of. We were always longing for something else, so we kept doing the same. What we wouldn’t do, to go back and give ourselves a good boot up the backside.

About the Author

Seamus O’Rourke is an actor, a poet, a playwright and a proud Leitrim man

 He has written fifteen stage plays and one whole book of poems,
recitations and good ones. He’s always on the radio. Based in rural Ireland, he has become widely known for his simple storytelling – capturing
rural Irish life in a way that both amuses and affects. His writing takes a rare approach – he watches from a different hill – it oozes with an energy and passion that comes from being in the wrong place at the right time. The only time you can get all the details is when there’s nothing happening.

That’s when you find out everything.
