About this title


Imagine BBC’s Country File crossed with the cult series Eurotrash, or Father Ted... Now imagine it as a book of true stories, written by an insider who has traveled the length and breadth of Ireland seeking out the weird, the wacky, the raunchy and the downright shocking... this is Wacky Eire.

An outrageous romp through the real Ireland – where ancient traditions and modern obsessions make lively bedfellows and where people constantly surprise you: naughty farmers, dodgy faith-healers, secret swingers, strippers, animal antics – they’re all here in words and pictures. Ranging from scandalous exposes to charming vignettes of rural life, this is the brazen face – and other bodily parts – of modern Ireland. Welcome to Wacky Eire – it’s stranger than fiction.

About the Author:

GERALDINE COMISKEY is the Sunday World’s roving reporter, rooting out Ireland’s wackiest stories. Her best-known scoop for the Sunday paper was the Thierry Henry doorstep ‘ambush’, when she appeared on the front pages of nearly every newspaper in the world, and TV news bulletins from Bogotá to Bangkok. Geraldine had her first news story published at the age of 14, in the Evening Herald and since then has worked for a variety of regional and national papers, including The Irish Times, Irish Daily Star, Irish Daily Mirror, Irish Sun, Sunday Tribune and The Irish Press, amongst many others. As the Irish Daily Star’s adventure correspondent, she had many wacky assignments including: getting set on fire by stuntmen, dancing on the wings of a World War II bi-plane, joining a circus trapeze troupe, and learning to shoot with the elite Garda ERU. Outside her life as a journalist, she has had many jobs, including a stint as a TEFL teacher in Italy, which she expanded into interpretation and translation work with her fluent Italian.
