Raising a Glass to The Churchill Arms – The Story of Gerry O’Brien has been written by artist and author Tim O’Brien (no relation to Gerry) and who hails from Bingham. Gerry was the ever-popular former manager of The Churchill Arms pub in Kensington. The Clare native retired from his role at the pub in 2017, more than 30 years after he first took up the managerial role in 1985.

In the years that have passed since he moved back to Ireland a book has been written about him, which was launched at The Churchill Arms. It tells the story of the Killaloe native’s time at the pub, which was famed for its stunning floral displays as well as its hearty Irish welcome.

The book includes all manner of fascinating anecdotes about Gerry’s time at the pub, as well as a history of the building and interesting Churchillian facts. It carries a foreword by Randolph Churchill, great-grandson of former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill, and is illustrated with photographs along with paintings and drawings by author Tim.
