Summary

The Poor Ould Fella is perhaps the most loved and definitely the most endangered species in Ireland. The Celtic Tiger has, alas, passed him by. As modern life continues to intrude on his traditional ways, he has little choice but to retreat to the safety of the pub or the comfort of his own fireside.

The Book of Poor Ould Fellas Summary

The Book of Poor Ould Fellas by Declan Lynch

The Poor Ould Fella is perhaps the most loved and definitely the most endangered species in Ireland. The Celtic Tiger has, alas, passed him by. As modern life continues to intrude on his traditional ways, he has little choice but to retreat to the safety of the pub or the comfort of his own fireside. Yet even in these familiar places of consolation, the 21st century threatens his peace of mind. How the Poor Ould Fella despises such modern concoctions as alcohol-free Guinness, the smoking ban and reality television.

In The Book of Poor Ould Fellas, for the first time, this dying way of life is dissected by the witty pen of one of Ireland's favourite writers, Declan Lynch, accompanied by the darkly humorous illustrations of Father Ted and I Keano creator Arthur Mathews. Many topics of significance to the POF come under inspection, such as The Internet, The Carvery Lunch, Telly Bingo, The Dog Called Mick, the New Mass, Mobile Phones and Hovels that are now Worth a Million. Here we discover the Ladies they Like (Sophia Loren, Grace Kelly and Maureen O'Hara), Ladies They Don't Like (Sinead O'Connor); Their ideal TV Schedule (Johnny McEvoy In Concert, Colombo, Lots of Horse Racing) and Their Nightmare TV schedule (Anna Nolan, Celebrity Chefs, Trinny and Susannah); A Typical Day in the Life; Great POFs in History; and Prominent POFs today.

The Book of Poor Ould Fellas is guaranteed to be one of the funniest books of the year.
