What began in Dublin, ended in Dublin…..

 

In between was a lifetime of arguments, dodgy child minders, bullying, night terrors, cancer scares, ruined holidays, fear of an impending nuclear war, put downs by ‘Sir Jimmy Saville’ and alcohol misuse.

 

It’s fair to say that alcoholism has pretty much torn my world apart. It’s caused the death of so many of my family members including both of my parents that I’ve almost become blasé towards death…..

 

But hey! This is no ‘tragic life story’!

 

My camp alcoholic uncle who’d be my only real male role model whilst growing up provided me with plenty of laughs, often at his own expense, more often at the expense of myself and others. He once fell in love with a Greek donkey I kid you not. “The way we ended up!” he’d say to you whilst holding his hand to his chest.

 

And what doesn’t kill you can only make you stronger; well that’s what I’ve heard anyway….

 

‘Their Spirits, My Demons’ is a warm and humorous reminiscence of growing up in a larger than life family plagued by emotional instability, denial and escapism from life’s trials and tribulations.
