A Not So Foreign Correspondent in Ireland by Kieran Cooke
Lunch with Martin McGuiness, scones and cream with Ian Paisley, tea with Charlie Haughey, drinks with Graham Greene and a day spent with Ireland's king of limericks. There's a plane hijack involving the Third Secret of Fatima, a shoot out in a cemetery, a tour round Samuel Beckett's house, a game of cricket on Lord Lucan's pitch - and much, much more.
In this collection of whimsical writings and gentle reminiscences we encounter many of the people and events that have shaped Ireland over the last 30 years.
Author Kieran Cooke has been a foreign corespondent for the BBC, The Financial Times and The Independent in Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Dublin and Athens. He juggles his time between Oxfordshire and County Mayo.
