  1. Bryan Gallagher is a retired headmaster who has spent his whole life living in the county of Fermanagh, Ireland, near the beautiful shores of Lough Erne. He used to be a regular contributor to the Radio Four show Home Truths presented by the late John Peel. Barefoot in Mullyneeny is a collection of short reminiscences from his time growing up in the 40’s and 50’s. On the face of it these are simple stories of a simpler time but like all stories of people’s lives there are truths that we all share. The pains of growing up, misunderstanding the world around us. Imbibing wisdom from the local characters of country life. Stories about hob nail boots for sale, swimming to Rabbit Island, playing in a dance band, learning about “coping the lea” and the philosophical cobbler who would recite poetry while he worked and who as age started to take its toll he would answer the enquiry of “How are you, Jimmy?” with “If I felt any better I’d have to see a doctor.” Or “Movin’ up in the queue.” “Between the two big ones,” And asked what are the two big ones he would reply “Birth and Death. A short book that made this reader smile and laugh more than once. If you need something to brighten your day take a dip into this book.
