Book Launch: Short Tales from High Stools by Denis Ryan

Date: Sat 08 Jul 2017
Time: 8 pm

‘Sit back, and imagine you are in the pub… The wind is howling around the door, but the black stuff is flowing, and the fire is roaring in the hearth, and the stories are starting to begin. You might not want to go home at all, at least not till you have “just one more, for the road”…’

So runs the introduction to  “SHORT TALES FROM HIGH STOOLS – A Collection of Pint-size Stories from West Kerry”, the new book from tour-guide, singer and raconteur Denis Ryan, and it is guaranteed to bring a smile to your lips.

Denis has had the great idea of putting together a selection of the stories he has gathered down the years, mostly from the “Seats of Knowledge”, which is to say the high stools along the bar at his local in Dunquin.

Denis was recently asked to take part in a live outside broadcast of Liveline on RTE Radio 1, hosted by Joe Duffy, and Joe gave the book his enthusiastic endorsement. We think his readers will like the book as much as Joe does…

The official launch of the book will be at Krugers in Dunquin, on Saturday the 8th of July at 8pm. There will be a celebrity speaker, music, small eats and wine. All welcome.
