McCarthys Bar is a brilliant book, every sentence a gem, very funny. Visited Ireland the previous year 2000 before reading the book and could relate to the people and places. Took the book back 2001 as a travel guide. You don't need to read every sentence twice, but you are compelled to to let the impact of the funny side of it wash over you. I can't wait for Pete McCarthy to write another book on any subject - its bound to be funny.
