Full description for Our Man in Hibernia
As a Londoner claiming Irish roots, Charlie Connelly thought he knew what Ireland was all about. After all, he'd drunk in Irish theme pubs. He even had a bodhran. Then, when he was least expecting it, he went to live there. Our Man In Hibernia follows Charlie's adventures living among the Irish. In an engaging and frequently hilarious tale - we learn why Barack Obama is an Irishman and how a tree stump can draw legions of visitors -- Charlie contrasts the shamrock-strewn image with the reality of life in modern Ireland. In addition, he delves into his own Irish roots to unearth a shocking yet essentially Irish story with repercussions that resonate even today.
