A fellow was talking at the bar in a pub in Virginia, County Cavan: “I don’t know where all this fuss about smoking is coming from. I’ve been smoking for forty years and there’s nothing wrong with my lung.” 

Sign seen on a Connemara pub: “Good clean entertainment in this pub every night except Tuesday.” 

Two aul wans talking in a pub in Donegal. First aul wan: “How is your son gettin’ on in the army?” Second aul wan: “He’s gettin’ on terrific. Only two years in uniform and they’ve already made him a court marshal.” 

A fellow working in the post office in Carrick-on-Shannon had the job of sorting the holiday postcards. One card he picked up read: “Having a lovely time in the west of Ireland. Wish you were here. Love, Kay & Tommy.” Under the name of the people for whom the card was intended was written “Have forgotten your address.” 

Des Mac Hale collects these and hundreds of other witty snippets of conversation, signs, misunderstandings and downright cheek in this hilarious book. An ideal Christmas gift for those who like the mischievous side of life.
