Charlie Byrne’s was delighted to receive signed copies of How are Things in Connemara by Bill Heaney, who kindly called in to sign a few of his fantastic books for us. Coming highly recommended by Philly, this book makes for an extremely interesting read.
Poets, film stars, footballers, diplomats, soldiers, sailors, royalty an ordinary folk in the street. Bill Heaney has met and written about people from all walks of life. In this special book he has turned his attention to his beloved Connemara. It was here he sought peace from the pressures of 55 years in journalism and politics, from copy boy to award-winning weekly newspaper editor and finally as special adviser to the First Minister of Scotland.
Crammed with interesting stories and stunning photographs of Connemara events, people and places. This is an informative and entertaining read for visitors and residents alike.
