About this deal

If you want a true to life good read that’s funny and warms your heart and makes you feel a range of emotions, this is your book! It feels very fresh to read something that feels like having a conversation with the author, Brendan O'Carroll has managed to do that perfectly here.

Throughout the tough moments, Brendan always had humour and a good story to tell alongside the ever-guiding inspiration of his own Mammy, a formidable figure who became Ireland's first female Labour MP, all whilst raising eleven children by herself. In his own unique voice, Brendan O'Carroll strings together the threads of his life, a helter-skelter story tracing the helter-skelter journey of a scrawny kid from Finglas, Dublin to TV screens around the world, told with warmth, humour, a touch of mischievousness - and more than a few coincidences. He's the youngest of eleven children from a poor family in Dublin, he's a boy whose father died when he was just nine years old; he's someone whose hope and determination meant he never gave up.The youngest of ten children from a poor family in Dublin, Brendan left school at the mere age of 12 to begin what would become a long and varied working life. I always wondered about the background of Brendon O'Caroll, especially as I have worked in the area of Finglas where he is from , and where Mrs Brown is based.

With more time on her hands after retirement and several close family members' deaths, she now has the luxury to immerse herself into her beloved writing hobby. Back in the 1960/70's Lots of people hated the series "Till Death do us Part" Staring Warren Mitchell and Anthony Booth.Having started a long series under a pen name is was almost impossible to change horses in mid-stream.

O’Carroll’s life was very different than what I had imagined; and it was fun to read how his famous mammy came into being.
