Oliver Kelleher has had plenty of ups and downs through the years and in this memoir he tells the story of a fascinating life. From his upbringing on a small, Leitrim farm to helter-skelter years in Dublin, to coming to Mayo to get married, rear a family and set up a very successful business, Oliver's story is one worth telling.
Is is in the telling that this memoir stands out. Written in his quintessential gregarious style, this is a book that will have you laughing out loud as Oliver casts his eye over his own life, people he met along the way and life and society in Ireland and beyond, with great observation and wit.
He's a straight shooter but, above all, despite all his setbacks, the book reveals a man with a very positive outlook on life and his memoir has plenty of life lessons in it.
