Medium Sized Town, Fairly Big Story Summary


Medium Sized Town, Fairly Big Story: The Stories that make the Headlines in Ireland's local newspapers.. And nowhere else by Ronan Casey

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.

`This book is a great validation of the importance of local newspapers.'

Tony Allen, the other half ...
