Setting off from Ireland, Pete McCarthy takes us on a wonderful journey around the weird and wonderful Irish communities of the world. In his own inimitable style, Pete recounts his adventures and escapades as, in Morocco he meets the head of Clan McCarthy, and then goes on to visit the renowned Irish peoples of New York. He journeys to the southern hemisphere and then back again to the United States before ending up in a small town called McCarthy in Alaska. Will he encounter enough McCarthy's Bars, as he continues to obey the eighth rule of travel: 'never pass a pub with your name on it'? This is a funny, affectionate look at the Irish communties of the world.

Pete McCarthy was born in Warrington to an Irish mother and an English father. He is the writer and performer of many series for radio and television, including 'Desperately Seeking Something', 'Country Tracks' and 'Travelog', for which he has won the Travelex Award for Best TV Travel Writer. He is the author of the bestselling McCARTHY'S BAR.Review:
Praise for McCARTHY'S BAR: 'McCarthy is a hilariously funny writer.' -- The Times 'McCarthy mines a rich seam of humour as he finds himself on the receiving end of some warm but unsophisticated hospitality. But then, he could probably make a phone book funny.' -- Independent on Sunday 'Don't panic - this is not the same story you hear from every tourist you meet...This book will make you laugh out loud through recognition and embarrassment.' -- Irish News 'One of the funniest writers around. If you were asked to choose an ideal travelling companion, you would put Pete McCarthy near the top of your list. But if he doesn't happen to be available, McCARTHY'S BAR is the next best thing.' -- Yorkshire Evening Post 'Hilarious, informed and intelligent...a wonderful debut. By the end, we, too, would like to move to Ireland.' -- Amazon.co.uk 'An engaging, evocative book. Four out of five stars.' -- Daily Mail
