Irish Women have been around for ages - some would say almost as long as Irish Men. We've learned a lot in that time but, until now, we haven't shared it. Perhaps being shushed by priests/foreign invaders/the wind for too long has taken its toll - but our time has finally come to speak out.
Here comedian Tara Flynn shares the wisdom of the Irishwoman, and why she holds the keys to success in life and how to live it - especially the rough bits. Armed with her all-purpose 'You're grand' philosophy, there is nothing the Irishwoman can't weather (even the weather).
Need dating advice?

Need a recipe for brown bread?

Worried about death?
Don't be!
Put the fun back in funeral!

Covering all things grand, from the grand basics starter pack, to how to spice up your love life (a lesson in 'Irotica', anyone?) - if this book doesn't change your life (and it will), it might just help you laugh at it.

Review quote

A humorous account of the wisdom that Irish women have acquired ... [You're Grand is] as lippy as it is tongue-in-cheek * Sunday Times * Intelligently written ... a great read. Funny, warm and affectionate * Irish Examiner * Flynn definitely finds the LOLs lurking behind the tears of Irish womanhood ... If there isn't enough in this book to make you giggle, then you're not trying hard enough * Irish Times *

About Tara Flynn

Tara Flynn is an Irishwoman so she knows first-hand what at least one Irishwoman thinks. She is from Co. Cork, which means she has plenty of opinions and is more than happy to share them. Her work has taken her all over the world but she found herself an American husband while she was away so that worked out well.
She works as an actress, columnist, improviser and stand up comedian and has appeared in hit TV shows such as Stewart Lee's Comedy Vehicle and Irish Pictorial Weekly. She makes satirical videos (Racist B Armagayddon) whenever she gets cross about inequality. She lives in Dublin with the American Husband. This is her first book.
