Waterford Whispers News is Ireland's answer to The Onion. The site shot to notoriety in January 2014 when it ran a spoof story about North Korea sending a rocket to the sun. Since then the site has been unstoppable, with headlines such as `Hundreds of Englishmen hospitalized after trying to play hurling,' `Emigration will be offered as a Leaving Cert subject in 2015,' and `Garda whistleblower not invited out with the lads from work this weekend.' From politics, to celebrity news and lifestyle, this book brings together the best of the brilliant and original stories that have run on the site. Hilarious, acerbic, and witty, this is Irish humor at its brilliant best!

About the Author:

Colm Williamson created Waterford Whispers News in 2009 when he was unemployed. Though it began as a hobby, with Colm sharing stories with family and friends, his unique brand of topical, distinctly Irish satire quickly attracted thousands of fans. Now, WWN has over 200,000 Facebook followers, and an average of 1.8 million page views on the website every month. Colm runs WWN from his home town of Tramore in County Waterford.

Review:

'Insightful social commentary such as "man who no like water thing throws rock at shiny car", "Grumpy cat found dead in hotel room of suspected drug overdose", or "Garda whistleblower not invited out with the lads from work this weekend", deserves to be branded on our national consciousness.' -- Roisin Agnew * Irish Times *
