Medium Sized Town, Fairly Big Story free pdf 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.

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.

Bressie 'I was laughing just reading some of the headlines!' Gerry Duffy, bestselling author of Who Dares, Runs and Tick Tock Ten 'This is a rale good book. A week never passes that I don't buy a few local papers and Ronan has done a savage job bringing some of the best stories from them together here.' Mick Foster, one half of Foster
