I bought this book on a charity stall. Forget the Antiques Roadshow - this is the best find of my life. I have read McCarthy's Bar no less than five times and I still laugh out loud. My favourite chapter is on the stone circle & his description of his visit to the Spanish bull run. I laughed so hard I nearly wet myself. My only regret is that I didn't get the opportunity to have a drink with him on his visit to Northern Ireland & maybe have made an appearance in this fantastic book. His observations on the 'oirish' people is so accurate. A simple yet complicated race.
