Ross has got a new job and it's making him question everything he thought he knew . . .

South Dublin's favourite son thought he could face any challenge - until he was asked to cross the bridge over the River Dargle.

For Ross O'Carroll-Kelly - schools rugby hero, celebrated bon vivant and lover of beautiful women - life has suddenly become complicated.

His father has been accused of rigging a General Election, his seventy-year-old mother is about to bring six surrogate babies into the world, and his daughter is being hailed as 'Ireland's answer to Greta Thunberg', telling everyone who cares to listen that the end of the world is nigh.

As if that wasn't bad enough, the Greatest Rugby Player Never to Play for Ireland has a nagging sense that he has to more to contribute to the beautiful game.

Now he's been offered a job coaching an underachieving school who've been waiting almost a century for their moment of glory. The challenge is to persuade a collection of jokers, chokers and forty-a-day smokers that they have what it takes to win the Leinster Schools Senior Cup.

The only drawback ... the school is in Bray!

About the author

Ross O'Carroll-Kelly

Ross O'Carroll-Kelly is a man of the people-if the people are basically birds and drop-dead focking gorgeous. Because life is short, roysh, so you can't fock about with, like, rolling mauls, you've got to head straight for the line. Which is second nature to a try-scorer like me, given my ball-handling skills. How the hell did I get so lucky? Focked if I know.

Ross O'Carroll-Kelly is the author of several bestselling books including; The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-DressShould Have Got Off at Sydney Parade, and This Champagne Mojito is the Last Thing I Own.
