Isn't It Well For Ye?: The Book of Irish Mammies




Everything you always wanted to know about the Irish Mammy . . . but were too timid to ask, weren't you pet?

A BOOK if you don’t mind! And him with a degree and a job and all.

Everyone should have an Irish Mammy. She’s never short of advice, a kind word and a cup of tea (making sure to scald the teapot first, of course).

Bring the coat anyway. If it’s too hot you can take it off.

Comedian Colm O’Regan explores the phenomenon of the Irish Mammy and what she might say about everything from the ‘new mass’ to the cardinal sin of not owning a cough bottle and the importance of airing clothes properly. The global influence of the Irish Mammy, through history, science, politics and literature, is undeniable. Did you know, for instance, that Hamlet had an Irish Mammy?

So if you’re an Irish Mammy, have one, know one or suspect you might be turning into one, this book will act as your guide. But be aware that though this book might think it knows it all, it doesn’t, only Mammy knows it all.

About the Author

Colm O'Regan

He had a good job and a degree and everything but Colm O’Regan gave it all up to try and be a comedian. He is also a columnist, broadcaster and anything else that will keep the wolf from the door. He heard there was fierce money in books so he has written four – the three bestselling books of Irish Mammies and also Bolloxology, a title which neatly sums up his skillset. From Dripsey in County Cork, Colm now lives in Dublin but he’s up and down that road a good bit – especially since they put in the motorway.
